Abstract

We examine the evolution in phase space of an N-point signal, produced and sensed at finite arrays transverse to a planar waveguide within the framework of the finite quantization of geometric optics. We use the Kravchuk coherent states provided by the finite oscillator model to evince the nonlinear transformations that elliptic-profile waveguides produce on phase space by means of the SO(3) Wigner function.
