Paper Abstract

We present the use of ray-matrix optics to study lens systems that perform optical Fourier transforms. The analysis is based on the interpretation of a ray in terms of a plane wave, and it avoids the necessity of using diffraction integrals. We also extend the analysis to fractional Fourier transform systems. This formulation represents a compact derivation of Fourier optics, useful for teaching the topic to engineers and physicists.
