Optical Transformations In Three-Space: Simulations With A Pc, Raymond G. Wilson, Sean M. Mccreary, Jeffrey L. Thompson

Raymond Wilson

Using Fourier transform and convolution techniques, it is illustrated how all aspects of Fraunhofer diffraction of virtually any aperture real or complex can be calculated and displayed in two- and three-space using an IBM-compatible PC. Details of program commands using software Matlab are illustrated as well as results of plotting software Surfer. Fresnel diffraction is illustrated using Fourier transformation.
