Abstract

On the basis of the intensity-moment formalism, certain analytical relationships are obtained for both the angular domain and the size of a transverse region of the beam that ensure a power content of at least 75% of the total power. As an illustrative application, the analytical results are compared with the exact values (numerically computed) of the amplitude of a lowest-order Gaussian beam diffracted by slits.
