Abstract

A new optimization for a continuously varying amplitude pupil filter that maximizes the signal concentration factor for a given transverse gain is derived. The filter has a simple parabolic amplitude transmittance, and is an example of a Sonine filter. The connection between different definitions of gain factor is discussed.
