  • An analytical description of arbitrary strongly aberrated axially symmetric focusing is developed. This is done by matching the solution of geometrical optics with a wave pattern which is universal for the underlying ray structure. The corresponding canonical integral is the Bessoid integral, which is a three-dimensional generalization of the Pearcey integral that approximates the field near an arbitrary two-dimensional cusp. We first develop the description for scalar fields and then… CONTINUE READING
