Paper Abstract

We propose a new method to increase the resolution of an optical system by modifying part of the spatial-frequency spectrum, viz., displacing the lower-frequency light to a high-frequency band, which makes the central maximum in the diffraction pattern narrower and increases the depth of focus. Simulation results show that this kind of apodizer (the term apodization was originally used to describe ways to reduce the sidelobes of the PSF, but in this paper, we use it in a wider sense) is superior to the phase-shifting ones.
