Abstract

Apodizing functions are used in Fourier transform spectroscopy (FTS) to reduce the magnitude of the sidelobes in the instrumental line shape (ILS), which are a direct result of the finite maximum optical path difference in the measured interferogram. Three apodizing functions, which are considered optimal in the sense of producing the smallest loss in spectral resolution for a given reduction in the magnitude of the largest sidelobe, find frequent use in FTS [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. 66, 259 (1976) ]. We extend this series to include optimal apodizing functions corresponding to increases in the width of the ILS ranging from factors of 1.1 to 2.0 compared with its unapodized value, and we compare the results with other commonly used apodizing functions.
