Basic demonstrations in diffractive and Fourier optics: use your eye as a Fourier transformer
Author(s): Erik W. Stijns

Paper Abstract

In this paper some setups are described for demonstrating the basics of diffractive and/or Fourier optics. It is first shown that the eye in fact can be used as a Fourier transformer: this makes the setups extremely simple. When using one extra lens, a 4-f processor can be built, by which such properties as, e.g., filtering can be demonstrated.
