Abstract

Transmission and reflection of Gaussian beams from a general anisotropic multilayer structure are investigated. The principal axes of the layers are oriented arbitrarily with respect to each other and with respect to a fixed reference coordinate system. The Gaussian beam is assumed to have an arbitrary angle of incidence and linear polarization orientation. Two numerical examples are presented: a single slab of uniaxial calcite and a multilayer structure of biaxial 4-(N,N-dimethylamino)-3-acetamidonitrobenzene with antireflection coatings on the input and output faces. Results show the distortions of the beam caused by the anisotropy of the structure.
