Abstract

Nonparaxial diffraction-limited propagation of light with amplitude distribution in hyperbolic functions through an inhomogeneous planar medium with a hyperbolic secant refractive-index profile is studied by means of the stationary phase method. The irradiance distribution at geometrical shadow, edge of shadow, and a geometrically illuminated region is analyzed for a particular case.
