Abstract

Hermite–Gauss and Laguerre–Gauss modes of a continuous optical field in two dimensions can be obtained from each other through paraxial optical setups that produce rotations in (four-dimensional) phase space. These transformations build the SU ( 2 ) Fourier group that is represented by rigid rotations of the Poincaré sphere. In finite systems, where the emitters and the sensors are in N × N square pixellated arrays, one defines corresponding finite orthonormal and complete sets of two-dimensional Kravchuk modes. Through the importation of symmetry from the continuous case, the transformations of the Fourier group are applied on the finite modes.
