The diffraction spectral intensity characteristics of a time-dependent Gaussian pulse from an apodized circular aperture in the far field are studied both theoretically and numerically. It is shown that the apodization of the diffracted Gaussian pulse spectrum can be found. Also the red or blue shift of the spectral intensity maximum of the incident pulse is presented.
