Function whose Fourier transform is Dirac delta

  1. Aug 16, 2014 #1
    Is there a time domain function whose Fourier transform is the Dirac delta with no harmonics? I.e. a single frequency impulse

    Couldn't you just take the inverse Fourier transform?

    Oh! I did that and it's it's a constant function, thanks

    Not really. The inverse Fourier transform of the delta function is 1. The Fourier transform of 1 is the delta function. Everything is fine. :)
