Abstract

The relation for the angular spectra of rotated planes is evaluated, starting from the knowledge of the mono-chromatic scalar field on a given plane. Diffracted light on a tilted plane can then be calculated in the frequency domain by fast-Fourier-transform algorithms. Unlike the Fresnel and Fraunhofer approaches, this analysis does not require approximations; as a consequence, it permits any positions in space for the planes under investigation. Digital images are generated, which show the effects of rotation.
