Abstract

A convolution formulation of Fresnel diffraction is presented. The diffracted amplitude is expressed as a convolution in either direct or reciprocal space. Approximations involve the use of parabolic wavefronts and the omission of the obliquity factor. The formulation is readily applied to many optical phenomena.

A theory of Fresnel transforms is given. The Fresnel transforms are expressed as a convolution in either direct or reciprocal space. Two examples of their use are given.
