Abstract: A contour-unsharpness in transmitted light is typical for the imaging of non-transparent bodies and cannot be geometric-optically explained with the collinear optical imaging. This contour-unsharpness follows geometric-optically from the ray-shading of the ray pencil on the body itself (shadow-projection). In this paper the geometric-optical modelling of the contour-unsharpness is discussed and illustrated by numeric-graphical examples.
