Item Open AccessAnamorphic fractional Fourier transform: optical implementation and applications(Optical Society of America, 1995-11-10) Mendlovic, D.; Bitran, Y.; Dorsch, R. G.; Ferreira, C.; Garcia, J.; Özaktaş, Haldun M.; Haldun M. ÖzaktaşAn additional degree of freedom is introduced to fractional-Fourier-transform systems by use of anamorphic optics. A different fractional Fourier order along the orthogonal principal directions is performed. A laboratory experimental system shows preliminary results that demonstrate the proposed theory. Applications such as anamorphic fractional correlation and multiplexing in fractional domains are briefly suggested. Item Open AccessChirp filtering in the fractional Fourier domain(Optical Society of America, 1994-11-10) Dorsch, R. G.; Lohmann, A. W.; Bitran, Y.; Mendlovic, D.; Özaktaş, Haldun M.; Haldun M. ÖzaktaşIn the Wigner domain of a one-dimensional function, a certain chirp term represents a rotated line delta function. On the other hand, a fractional Fourier transform (FRT) can be associated with a rotation of the Wigner-distribution function by an angle connected with the FRT order. Thus with the FRT tool a chirp and a delta function can be transformed one into the other. Taking the chirp as additive noise, the FRT is used for filtering the line delta function in the appropriate fractional Fourier domain. Experimental filtering results for a Gaussian input function, which is modulated by an additive chirp noise, are shown. Excellent agreement between experiments and computer simulations is achieved. Item Open AccessFractional Fourier transform: simulations and experimental results(Optical Society of America, 1995) Bitran, Y.; Mendlovic, D.; Dorsch, R. G.; Lohmann, A. W.; Özaktaş, Haldun M.; Haldun M. ÖzaktaşRecently two optical interpretations of the fractional Fourier transform operator were introduced. We address implementation issues of the fractional-Fourier-transform operation. We show that the original bulk-optics configuration for performing the fractional-Fourier-transform operation 3J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 10, 2181 1199324 provides a scaled output using a fixed lens. For obtaining a non-scaled output, an asymmetrical setup is suggested and tested. For comparison, computer simulations were performed. A good agreement between computer simulations and experimental results was obtained. Item Open AccessA New Signal Representation based on the Fractional Fourier Transform: Definitions(OSA Publishing, 1995) Mendlovic, D.; Zalevsky, Z.; Dorsch, R.; Bitran, Y.; Lohmann, A. W.The fractional Fourier transform is a mathematical operation that generalizes the well-known Fourier transform. This operation has been shown to have physical and optical fundamental meanings, and it has been experimentally implemented by relatively simple optical setups. Based on the fractional Fourier-transform operation, a new space-frequency chart definition is introduced. By the application of various geometric operations on this new chart, such as radial and angular shearing and rotation, optical systems may be designed or analyzed. The field distribution, as well as full information about the spectrum and the space-bandwidth product, can be easily obtained in all the stages of the optical system.
