Abstract

A solution to the problem of plane electromagnetic waves focused by an ellipsoidal or a hyperboloidal lens is derived from the Stratton–Chu integral by solving a boundary-value problem. The current method is more rigorous than those hitherto published in the literature. Results show that for linearly polarized incident illumination and in the vicinity of the focus, the distribution of the time-averaged electric energy density is almost fully transverse electric.
