    • 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 ...
    • Nonlinear Optical Eigenmodes 

      Docherty-Walthew, Graeme; Mazilu, Michael (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2019-03-01) - Conference item
      In linear optics, the concept of a mode is well established. Often these modes correspond to a set of fields that are mutually orthogonal with intensity profiles that are invariant as they propagate through an optical ...
    • Optical eigenmode description of partially coherent light fields 

      Mazilu, Michael (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2019-03-04) - Conference item
      Optical eigenmodes describe coherent solutions of Maxwells equations that are orthogonal to each other. These modes form a natural basis set of the electromagnetic Hilbert space that can be used to describe optical scattering ...
    • 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 ...
