An analysis of a white-light optical-processing system is presented based on the cross-spectral density function. A plane-by-plane analysis of the cross-spectral density function is given, including the effects of source size and grating frequency. The degree of coherence in the Fourier plane is examined in detail, and an explanation of the fan-shaped deblurring filter based on this analysis is also given.
