Paper Abstract

In this paper we propose a particular experimental setup for measuring the instrument function, the Weyl transform of the non-negative definite Hermitian operator representing the effect of the instrument in a measurement. Once the instrument function is known, the results of various measurements involving wavefields of any state of coherence can be calculated. For simplicity, we will concentrate our discussion on the case of one transverse spatial dimension.
