The well-known central-slice, or projection-slice, theorem states that the Radon transform can be used to reduce a two-dimensional Fourier transform to a series of one-dimensional Fourier transforms. The Radon transform is carried out with a rotating prism and a flying-line scanner, while the one-dimensional Fourier transforms are performed with surface acoustic wave filters. Both real and imaginery parts of the complex Fourier transform can be obtained. A method of displaying the two-dimensional Fourier transforms is described, and representative transforms are shown. Application of this approach to Labeyrie speckle interferometry is demonstrated.
