Abstract

It is shown that the full four-dimensional Wigner transform of a coherent, rotationally symmetric light beam can be completely recovered by measurement, in one step, of the Wigner transform of an equivalent one-dimensional light beam. The method of generating this equivalent light beam from a two-dimensional circular light beam is presented.
