Paper Abstract

We present a system in which it is possible to distort the intensity distribution of an object I(x,y) into I(Ax + By,Cx + Dy), where the ABCD matrix has a unit determinant. The coefficients A, B, C and D can be varied independent of each other by rotating some cylindrical lenses. The degree of coherence is arbitrary. The number of pixels is limited in the usual way by the size of the object, by the wavelength, and by the F-number of the lenses.
