Abstract

The possibility of applying an ordinary quasi-geometrical technique for Fraunhofer diffraction calculations on absolutely absorbing three-dimensional (3-D) bodies of constant thickness is investigated. It is shown that such an application can lead to results that are inadequate for finding the physical diffraction pattern of 3-D bodies. A modified version of the technique is suggested that, to a greater degree, takes into account secondary diffraction and thus permits a more exact presentation of characteristic features of the light diffracted by 3-D bodies. Some examples of this approach applied to the light-diffraction analysis of simple 3-D bodies are given. It is shown experimentally and with calculations that this approach permits description of the diffraction effects of 3-D bodies of the class mentioned in rather simple form and with good accuracy.
