Quantum Physics


A First Look at Feature Optics

Authors: Paul Mirsky

Feature optics is a new proposal for modeling diffraction and interference in terms of simple elements called features. We combine features to form composite systems by taking the outer product of the individual features’ state vectors. The Fourier transform takes on a surprisingly simple form. We apply the new method to the beam and the diffraction grating.
