The opportunity to process signals in domains other than the time or frequency domains arises naturally in coherently illuminated optical systems that produce Fourier transforms. It is well known that N samples are sufficient to represent the information content in the object, image, and Fourier planes. We extend these results to show that we can accurately represent the intensity signal in any Fresnel plane of a coherently illuminated optical system with exactly N samples, provided that we use a specified nonuniform sampling technique.
