Determination of Lateral Modulation Apodization Functions Using a Regularized, Weighted Least Squares Estimation

Figure 3

Lateral intensity profiles of a designed PSF (dash-dot line with square) and PSFs obtained using apodization functions obtained with a regularized WMNLS estimation (solid line with circle), a Fraunhofer approximation (dashed line with triangle) and a SVD (dotted line with cross) for (a) = 0.8 and (b) 0.6 mm.
