Abstract
Fourier analysis has been revealing itself as powerful for dealing with coherent optics and the fractional order Fourier transform is an extension of this tool. There exists a method of the fractional Fourier transform in coherent optics which legitimizes the name of fractional Fourier optics. This fact is illustrated by examples in light propagation, coherent imaging, image formation, and optical resonator theory. A fractional correlation operation is deduced and the designs of optical fractional correlators are proposed.
