Normalization of the Mathieu–Gauss optical beams

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

A series scheme is discussed for the determination of the normalization constants of the even and odd Mathieu–Gauss (MG) optical beams. We apply a suitable expansion in terms of Bessel–Gauss (BG) beams and also answer the question of how many BG beams should be used to synthesize a MG beam within a tolerance. The structure of the normalization factors ensures that MG beams will always be normalized independently of the particular normalization adopted for the Mathieu functions. In this scheme, the normalization constants are expressed as rapidly convergent series that can be calculated to an arbitrary precision.
