      The goal Introducing students to concepts of spatial frequencies and application of Fourier analysis on analysis and synthesis of optical imaging systems.
      The outcome Students should be able to apply Fourier analysis on analysis of a single lens image formation, to design spatial filters, to perform synthesis of more complex optical systems according to required specifications, to understand the way how holographic memories work and the role of holographic elements in optical fibers in optical pulses shaping and processing.
      Contents of lectures Analysis of two-dimensional signals and systems, scalar diffraction theory, a thin lens as a phase transformation, Fourier transforming properties of lenses, image formation, analysis of complex coherent optical systems, frequency analysis of optical imaging systems, wavefront modulation, analog optical information processing, holography, Fourier optics in optical communications.
