Abstract

A rotated coordinate system is used to evaluate the irradiance distribution of a Fresnel diffraction pattern. Arbitrary diffracting objects are defined in a bounded input plane. Fresnel patterns for linear chirp functions are simply related to the single-slit pattern. Features of the single-slit pattern are developed for use as optical system design criteria.
