Paper Abstract

The control of light is a basic process that enables the realization of novel devices and systems. Traditional optics deals with information being delivered in time, as in optical fibers or in space between 'input' and 'output' planes, as in an imaging system. However, the increasing demand for novel functionalities has raised the need to deliver information in multiple dimensions in space and in space-time. Different approaches for the synthesis of three-dimensional and spatio- temporal light-fields are discussed. The mathematical tools include spatial, spectral, and modal domain synthesis.
