  • Density of optical degrees of freedom : intensity, linear and angular momentum 

    Mazilu, Michael (SPIE, 2014-02-25) - Conference item
    For any optical system, optical eigenmodes describe solutions of Maxwells equations that are orthogonal to each other. In their simplest free space form, these modes correspond, for example, to Bessel, Laguerre-Gaussian ...
  • Optical eigenmodes for illumination & imaging 

    Kosmeier, Sebastian (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-26) - Thesis
    This thesis exploits so called “Optical Eigenmodes” (OEi) in the focal plane of an optical system. The concept of OEi is introduced and the OEi operator approach is outlined, for which quadratic measures of the light field ...
