A tomographic analysis of reflectometry data I: Component factorization
New type of tomographic probability distribution which contains complete information on the density matrix (wave function) related to the Fresnel transform of the complex wave function is introduced. Relation to symplectic tomographic probability distribution is elucidated. Multimode generalization of the Fresnel tomography is presented. Examples of applications of the present approach are given. keywords: tomographic map, phase space, Wigner function, Bose–Einstein condensate, Fresnel tomogram.
