We consider the relations between bandlimited one-dimensional object-plane fields which yield the same intensity distribution in the Fraunhofer (Fourier transform) plane. In the case in which the Fraunhofer-plane fields differ by the conjugation of a single zero, a simple relation results which appears useful in phase-retrieval algorithms.
