Abstract

A correspondence relationship between space and wavenumber for fully spatially coherent uniform monochromatic and polychromatic light in near- and far-field diffraction is fully illustrated, and it is used to study a phenomenon called the Fresnel zone spectra, which is verified experimentally. The spectra can be filtered or manipulated by moving the detection position relative to Fresnel zone plate along the optical axis.
