Paper Abstract

The optical instrument function is used as the basis to develop optical system theory for imaging applications. The detection of optical signals is conveniently described as the overlap integral of the Wigner distribution functions of instrument and optical signal. Based on this framework various optical imaging systems, including plenoptic cameras, phase-retrieval algorithms, and Shack-Hartman sensors are shown to acquire information about a domain in phase-space, with finite extension and finite resolution. It is demonstrated how phase space optics can be used both to analyze imaging systems, as well as for designing methods for image reconstruction.
