We describe a reciprocal-lattice vector method for analysis of the diffractive self-imaging (or Talbot effect) of a two-dimensional periodic object. Using this method we analyze the fractional Talbot effect of a hexagonal array and deduce a simple analytical expression for calculation of the complex amplitude distribution at any fractional Talbot plane. Based on this new formula, we design a hexagonal array illuminator (HTAI) with a high fractional parameter. A computer simulation for… CONTINUE READING
