16 June 1995 Rectangular pixel-based fractal diffraction patterns
Author Affiliations +
Fractals have been used successfully in generating missing information in scene reconstruction. If this information is processed using coherent optical techniques, then it is important to understand the properties of the Fourier transforms of fractals. Since fractals with square or rectangular bases are representative of pixel structures found on most electrically adressed spatial light modulators, a square-based fractal has been generated and its far field diffraction pattern calculated. The properties of the resulting Fourier spectrum are discussed.
