• Grating dispersion • Wave optics description of a lens: quadratic phase delay • Lens as Fourier transform engine

**Diffraction from periodic array of holes**

Spatial frequency: 1/Λ A spherical wave is generated at each hole; we need to figure out how the periodically-spaced spherical waves interfere incident plane wave

3
**Diffraction from periodic array of holes**

Spatial frequency: 1/Λ Interference is constructive in the direction pointed by the parallel rays if the optical path difference between successive rays equals an integral multiple of λ (equivalently, the phase delay equals an integral multiple of 2π) incident plane wave Optical path differences

**Dispersion from a grating**

13
**Prism dispersion vs grating dispersion**

Blue light is refracted at larger angle than red: normal dispersion Blue light is diffracted at smaller angle than red: anomalous dispersion

14
**The ideal thin lens as a Fourier transform engine**

15
**Q: how can we “undo” the convolution optically?**

Fresnel diffraction Reminder coherent plane-wave illumination The diffracted field is the convolution of the transparency with a spherical wave Q: how can we “undo” the convolution optically?

16
**Fraunhofer diffraction**

Reminder The “far-field” (i.e. the diffraction pattern at a large longitudinal distance l equals the Fourier transform of the original transparency calculated at spatial frequencies Q: is there another optical element who can perform a Fourier transformation without having to go too far (to ∞ ) ?

17
**The thin lens (geometrical optics)**

f (focal length) object at ∞ (plane wave) Ray bending is proportional to the distance from the axis point object at finite distance (spherical wave)

18
**The thin lens (wave optics)**

incoming wavefront a(x,y) outgoing wavefront a(x,y) t(x,y)eiφ(x,y) (thin transparency approximation)

19
**The thin lens transmission function**

**Fraunhofer diffraction vis-á-vis a lens**

30
**Spherical – plane wave duality**

plane wave oriented point source at (x,y) amplitude gin(x,y) towards ... of plane waves corresponding to point sources in the object each output coordinate (x’,y’) receives ... ... a superposition ...

31
**Spherical – plane wave duality**

produces a spherical wave converging a plane wave departing from the transparency at angle (θx, θy) has amplitude equal to the Fourier coefficient at frequency (θx/λ, θy /λ) of gin(x,y) produces a spherical wave converging towards each output coordinate (x’,y’) receives amplitude equal to that of the corresponding Fourier component

32
Conclusions When a thin transparency is illuminated coherently by a monochromatic plane wave and the light passes through a lens, the field at the focal plane is the Fourier transform of the transparency times a spherical wavefront The lens produces at its focal plane the Fraunhofer diffraction pattern of the transparency When the transparency is placed exactly one focal distance behind the lens (i.e., z=f ), the Fourier transform relationship is exact.
