Abstract

An electrical equalizer for a superresolution readout system with an optical apodizer is proposed and verified experimentally. This superresolution readout system uses a five-tap transversal filter as the electrical equalizer instead of additional optics to suppress enlarged sidelobes, and it achieves higher resolution than the diffraction-limited system. The transfer function of the electrical equalizer is also derived theoretically. This approach allows fabrication of a readout system with a good signal-to-noise ratio and a compact head.
