An optical filter that has an ideal response for removing aliasing noise from a sampled imaging system is described. The all-phase filter uses complementary Golay codes to achieve an optimum low-pass transfer function with no sidelobes. A computer model shows that the optical system has the expected performance in the ideal case, but degrades somewhat with wavelength variations and image aberrations. An experimental demonstration of the filter shows the optical transfer function performance and the response to imagery with a sampled detector.
