Abstract

A convenient expression describing the location of Fresnel diffraction patterns when a diffracted spherical wave is focused by a lens is given. Experimental results confirm the predicted positions of 26 axial extrema corresponding to integer numbers of Fresnel half-period zones. Experimental radial intensity profiles are presented for some of these positions.
