Abstract

In this work we investigate the behavior of the instantaneous Poynting vector of symmetrical paraxial laser beams, namely the modification of the instantaneous Poynting vector and the radiation pattern during propagation in free space for a variety of such beams. As an example, we have investigated in detail the behavior of the instantaneous Poynting vector and the radiation pattern of the paraxial Gaussian and Bessel beams.
