Electromagnetic Field Theory for Invariant Beams Using Scalar Potentials

By Irving Rondon-Ojeda and Francisco Soto-Eguibar

Abstract

We present a description of the electromagnetic field for the propagation invariant beams using scalar potentials. Fundamental dynamical quantities are obtained: energy density, Poynting vector and Maxwell stress tensor. As an example, all these quantities are explicitly calculated for the Bessel beams, which are invariant beams with circular cylindrical symmetry.
