Propagation of focused vector Helmholtz-Gauss beams uri icon

Abstract

  • We examine the free-space propagation characteristics of focused vector Helmholtz-Gauss (vHzG) beams. A closed-form expression for the vector field distribution at the focal plane is derived and exemplified for several types of vHzG beams. © 2006 Optical Society of America.
