Windows such as Dolph-Chebyshev window and Kaiser window are adjustable, whereas windows such as Hamming window and Blackman window are traditionally not adjustable. In [1], a technique for trading off main lobe width against sidelobe magnitude for any arbitrary window, including the traditionally non-adjustable windows, was presented. However, the method in [1] requires a large number of iterations if the specification is very tight. Developed based on a new perspective on the window adjustment principle, a new method to achieve the same adjustment capability as in [1], but at a very much fewer iterations is presented in this letter. Our new method is particular useful if the specification is very tight.
