Abstract

On the basis of the fact that a hard-edged-aperture function can be expanded into a finite sum of complex Gaussian functions, approximate analytical expressions for the output field distribution of a Laguerre-Gaussian beam and an elegant Laguerre-Gaussian beam passing through apertured fractional Hankel transform systems are derived. Some numerical simulation comparisons are done, by using the approximate analytical formulas and diffraction integral formulas, and it is shown that our method can significantly improve the numerical calculation efficiency.
