The mutual intensity distribution of a light beam may contain available information. The task of encoding a given mutual intensity distribution is addressed in this paper. Various approaches for encoding the mutual intensity function have been previously proposed. However, all of them provide low energetic efficiency and commonly require sophisticated production methods. The idea of using a phase-only filter for performing this synthesis is hereby investigated. The proposed method is numerically examined for the case of placing the mutual intensity generating filter in the fractional Fourier domain.
