Properties of the radiation emitted by a phase sinusoidal undulator are calculated in the far field approximation. Software has been developed to calculate the spectral distribution and polarization of the radiated intensity IE at a point on or integrated over a cross sectional observation plane of the photon beam. Spatial distribution of monochromatic radiation and power density contours are also calculated. Spectral broadening caused by an electron beam of finite spatial distribution is considered. Dispersive properties of the photon beam, including the dependence on deflection parameter, are analyzed. It is shown that reasonably constant intensity distribution IE can be obtained by properly shaping the beam acceptance aperture.
