Abstract
An achromatic Fourier system (AFS) performs optically a Fourier transformation in spatially coherent white light, without color blurring. Our design method uses matrix algebra, applied upon the Wigner distribution function. The matrix procedure is similar to what is used in geometrical objects. However, our approach is valid also for wave optics. That is important because the AFS does contain not only refractive lenses, but also diffractive lenses (Fresnel zone plates).
