Plane-wave Expansions of the Optical Field*

Abstract

In the theories of electrodynamics, acoustics, and optics, fields that satisfy the homogeneous wave equation are often represented by integral expansions of monochromatic plane waves, all propagating with the same speed [ 1,2] . Two different plane-wave expansions are in use. One expansion, due to Whittaker [3] , expresses the field as a superposition of… (More)
