RADIATION CHARACTERISTICS OF THE WOOD LENS USING MASLOV'S METHOD

By A. Hussain, Q. A. Naqvi, and K. Hongo

Full Article PDF (413 KB)

Abstract:
The field refracted by a Wood lens is determined analytically and numerically in the focal region by Maslov's method. Results are compared withth ose obtained by weak focusing approximation and Kirchhoff's diffraction integral. Agreement among them is fairly good when the parameters satisfy the conditions associated to the approximation.
