ABCD matrix for reflection and refraction of Gaussian beams at the surface of a parabola of revolution

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We report the formulation of an ABCD matrix for reflection and refraction of Gaussian light beams at the surface of a parabola of revolution that separate media of different refractive indices based on optical phase matching. The equations for the spot sizes and wave-front radii of the beams are also obtained by using the ABCD matrix. With these matrices, we can more conveniently design and evaluate some special optical systems, including these kinds of elements.
