Abstract

Evolution of transverse intensity profiles for the dominant and cross-polarization components of linearly polarized Hermite–Gauss laser beams is studied experimentally as the beams propagate away from their waist. Measured intensity profiles and their evolution with propagation are in good agreement with the theoretical predictions.
