In this paper, we theoretically prove the fractional self-imaging effect of the two-dimensional array with arbitrary shape and symmetry, using scalar diffraction theory and the known periodic self-Fourier-Fresnel transform function comb(x , y). As a result, we also got a general equation to calculate the phase of the fractional Talbot image of the two-dimensional array. As an example, we numerically evaluate the intensity distribution of the diamond array in triangular symmetry in the fractional Talbot plane using Matlab, The result is a good agreement with the theory.
