Abstract

We studied the influence that aberrations and diffraction have on the quality of the image of a generic family of slit-coupled axisymmetric systems when both effects are competitive. We evaluated the modulation optical transfer function of these systems for small amounts of individual third-order aberrations and different widths of the intermediate slit that couples both stages.
