Certain applications in coherent optical processing of two-dimensional signals require the operation of imaging a signal in one dimension while simultaneously Fourier transforming it in the other. Such parallel operations can be performed by a number of different system designs. This paper presents a method of analyzing such systems by treating each dimension independently and using three basic component subsystems. The method simplifies mathematical analysis of system operation and facilitates intuitive design for particular applications.
