Fresnel integrals corresponding to different distances can be interpreted as scaled fractional Fourier transformations observed on spherical reference surfaces. We show that by judiciously choosing sample points on these curved reference surfaces, it is possible to represent the diffracted signals in a nonredundant manner. The change in sample spacing with distance reflects the structure of Fresnel diffraction. This sampling grid also provides a simple and robust basis for accurate and efficient computation, which naturally handles the challenges of sampling chirplike kernels. © 2011 Optical Society of America.

Fundamental structure of Fresnel diffraction: Longitudinal uniformity with respect to fractional Fourier order Ozaktas, H., M.; Arik, S.O.; Coşkun, T. (2012)Fresnel integrals corresponding to different distances can be interpreted as scaled fractional Fourier transformations observed on spherical reference surfaces. Transverse samples can be taken on these surfaces with ...
Arik S.Ö.; Ozaktas H.M. (Elsevier, 2016)Optical fields propagating through quadratic-phase systems (QPSs) can be modeled as magnified fractional Fourier transforms (FRTs) of the input field, provided we observe them on suitably defined spherical reference surfaces. ...
Durak L.; Özdemir, A.K.; Arikan, O.; Song I. (2005)The 2-D signal representations of variables rather than time and frequency have been proposed based on either Hermitian or unitary operators. As an alternative to the theoretical derivations based on operators, we propose ...
