Fourier Optics I. Spatial Frequency Filtering
We will show in this chapter that the amplitude distribution in the back focal plane of an aberrationless lens is the Fourier transform* of the amplitude distribution in the front focal plane. This remarkable property has many interesting applications and forms the fundamental principle underlying the subject of spatial frequency filtering.
