Example text

As the simplest example, free space propagation may serve. w'o w'i wo wi z L Fig. 11. Ray propagation over length L in free space In the simplest case of ray propagation in free space, as shown in Fig. 92) will lead to: wo = awi + bw a=1 ⇒ wo = cwi + dw c=0 b=L . 93) Thus the matrix for any optical element can be developed as long as the light path through these elements is reversible. Beam-cutting apertures cannot be described by matrices with real elements but matrices with imaginary elements can solve this problem in some cases.

10. 83) . 84) Using computer programs for analytical calculations these solutions can be derived easily. Thus the complicated calculation of propagation of the diffraction-limited Gaussian beams through a large system of optical elements becomes very easy. Many non-Gaussian beams can be propagated in a similar way as will be described in Sect. 9 (p. 412). g. for a laser beam. While the beam radius wi can be determined easily (see Sect. 3, p. 57) the curvature radius is usually not directly available.

45) A simple example is the spherical field distribution in the case of a point light source. In this case the field vector describes spheres but in addition the amplitude decreases by 1/r and thus the intensity decreases by 1/r2 . 47) 2 All these formulas are valid for the magnetic field vector analog but usually the magnetic field does not need to be calculated explicitly. 48) where k/k is a unit wave vector pointing towards the propagation direction of the wave. g. in interference experiments. The energy density of the light field can be calculated from: intensity I= 1 ε0 n|E 0 |2 2 and the light power P is related by: energy density power P = ρE = 1 c0 ε0 n 2 |E 0 |2 dA.
