Abstract

The linear canonical transform may be used to simulate the effect of paraxial optical systems on wave fields. Using a recent definition of the discrete linear canonical transform, phase space diagram analyses of the sampling requirements of the direct method of calculating the Fresnel and other linear canonical transforms are more favorable than previously thought. Thus the direct method of calculating these transforms may be used with fewer samples than previously reported simply by making use of an appropriate reconstruction filter on the samples output by the algorithm.
