The fractional Fourier transform (FRFT) is a very powerful tool for analyzing nonstationary††† signals such as chirps, with attractive applications in optics, signal processing etc. The purpose of this work is to derive new sampling formula to overcome the Shannon sampling theorem in the FRFT domain to sample and reconstruct chirp signals as well as sampling rate conversion, for the FRFT.Due to the invention of new sampling theorem a signal can potentially be sampled with a rate less than the Nyquist rate without aliasing of signalís FRFT.
