Paper Abstract

The spatial resolution limit of noncollinear acousto-optic tunable filters used for imaging with incoherent light is derived based on phase-matching requirements. It is shown that the noncollinear filter can achieve near diffraction limited imaging. This conclusion was verified experimentally.
