Abstract

The contributions of homogeneous and evanescent waves to two-dimensional near-field diffraction patterns of scalar optical fields are examined in detail. The total plane-integrated intensities of the two contributions are introduced as convenient measures of their relative importance. As an example, the diffraction of a plane wave by a slit is considered.
