The forward tracing technique for diffraction analysis (FFTD) is a numerical technique for ray-tracing environments inspired by the Boundary Diffraction Wave. The technique was developed specifically considering circular apertures in imaging systems. In previous work the technique was applied to a simple optical system. The value of the method has been geared towards aiding optical design where diffraction effects not produces at the aperture stop are important. In this work the technique is app...
