The use of anamorphic optics allows us to obtain a fractional Fourier transform with a different order in two orthogonal axis. This possibility is checked with a laboratory experiment, where an anamorphic FRT is optically obtained, with a good agreement with the computer simulated result. Several applications, such as correlation and multiplexing, can take advantage of the new degree of freedom added by this method.
