Focused-beam interaction with a phase step

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The interaction of a tightly focused laser beam with a step function is encountered in optical storage media, scanning microscopy, positioning and aligning systems, and various other applications. A theoretical and experimental investigation provides an improved description of the physical process and indicates the possibility of achieving extreme superresolution suitable for certain applications.
