Abstract

Shows that the amplitude and phase of an optical field can be recovered from only a section of phase-space distribution functions, the information contained in other sections being redundant. Experimental implications of this result are discussed, and a physical interpretation of it is offered. In particular the sampling problem in tomography is solved for any field distribution.
