Abstract

Based on the vectorial Rayleigh–Sommerfeld diffraction integrals, an analytical propagation equation of vectorial, nonparaxial, elliptical Gaussian beams through a rectangular aperture is derived. Unlike in previous work, the aperture effect and nonrotational symmetry of the beam and aperture are considered in our theoretical model. The results of the far-field and paraxial approximation for the apertured case are treated as special cases of our general expression. It is found that two f parameters fx,fy and two truncation parameters δx,δy in the x and y directions, respectively, have to be introduced that affect the beam nonparaxial evolution behavior in both the near field and the far field.
