Abstract

A systematic study of the joint spatial–directional localization features of monochromatic wave fields focused at a complex point is presented, on the basis of recently introduced measures of spatial and directional spread for wide-angle wave fields. Such features are compared with those of a class of fields defined to achieve the theoretical minimum product of these spread measures. It is found that the two classes of fields are remarkably similar.
