Photonic devices that implement specific integral transforms of optical beams and optical pulses are presented. They include integrated devices, such as semiconductor waveguides with a prescribed refractive index profile, patterned electro-optic materials as reconfigurable waveguides, integrated lenses or nonlinear and dispersive materials for characterization of optical pulses. Set-ups that generate phase space distributions such as the spectrogram or the Wigner distribution function are also presented; they can be integrated into a device if all their components are micromachined. The usefulness of these phase space set-ups for characterizing micro-optical objects is demonstrated by experimental data referring to micro-optical lenses and laser beams.
