Abstract

The exact expressions of the electromagnetic field pertinent to Gaussian and flattened Gaussian linearly polarized boundary distributions have been derived in closed-form terms for any point lying on the axis. The obtained results allow the fields to be predicted for an arbitrary transverse beam size. Numerical results showing the differences between the exact results and those obtained within the paraxial framework are also presented.
