There is a price to be paid, however, in that the main beam broadens with increasing suppression of side lobes, resulting in a decrease in lateral resolution. More exponential multiplication factor also called line broadening, ft exp rt makes the signals broader. Sample files from the book are now provided in the zemax opticstudio 17.
In the ultrasound bmode brightnessmode imaging, high sidelobe level reduces contrast to noise ratio cnr. As mentioned earlier, the spectral interpolation effectively introduced by zerofilling, increases the information contained in each the real and the imaginary part of the signal by the amount of additional information contained in the respective other part.

The usage of this software is very easy in use by the engineers. Vigan et al apodization in highcontrast longslit spectroscopy signi. Despite the virtue of apodization to reduce the truncation artifacts, there is a tradeoff between the apodization and the sharpness of a transition region in the frequencyresponse profile of the rf pulse. A linear apodization scheme by using the window function can suppress the sidelobe level while the mainlobe width is increased resulting in degraded lateral resolution. This dual apodization allows us to determine the amount of mainlobe versus clutter contribution in a signal by crosscorrelating rf data acquired from two apodization functions.
