31 MIT 2.71/2.710 Optics 11/03/04 wk9-b-31 Spherical – plane wave duality 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 produces a spherical wave converging

32 MIT 2.71/2.710 Optics 11/03/04 wk9-b-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.
