Abstract

Conditions for exactly self-imaging nonparaxial fields that are periodic also in the transverse direction are introduced. The theory is first derived by assuming full coherence and then extended into the domain of partial coherence. Different types of solutions are discussed, and some illustrations of the existence of solutions and intensity distributions of the fields are presented.
