Abstract

A theoretical model is proposed to approximately describe an anomalous hollow beam of elliptical symmetry with an elliptical solid core, which was observed in experiment recently [ Phys. Rev. Lett. 94, 134802 (2005) ]. Expressions for the propagation factor and effective beam spot size for the anomalous hollow beam are derived. Based on the Collins integral formula, an analytical propagation formula for the anomalous hollow beam passing through a paraxial A B C D optical system is derived. The propagation properties in free space are studied graphically.
