Abstract

A simple Fourier transformation system working with broadband parallel illumination is presented. The proposed setup, consisting of two on-axis zone plates and an achromatic objective, allows us to obtain the achromatic Fourier transform representation of the input at a finite distance with a low chromatic aberration. The discussion of the system, using the Fresnel diffraction theory, leads to an analytical expression to evaluate the transversal and longitudinal chromatic aberrations. It is shown that the resulting chromatic aberrations for typical values of the involved parameters are less than 1% over the entire visible spectrum.
