Abstract

Imagery of a general periodic triangular wave object formed by an aberration-free narrow rectangular aperture (slit) with tapered illumination, has been investigated. The system is assumed to be operating in incoherent light. Results have been presented for the far field intensity distribution in the diffraction images and the general triangular wave response of the system. An object function which gives a wave response nearly similar to that of sine wave has been pointed out.
