Paper Abstract

We describe the analytical calculation for the Fourier transform of the semicircle aperture function. The calculation is presented in polar co-ordinates. The Fourier transform is composed of the sum of the typical Bessel's function of one order plus a complex infinite power-series of radial terms with angular coefficients which are obtained from a recurrence formulae. A digital image of the Fourier transform via the FFT of the binary semicircle aperture is presented.
