Often, experiments involve light beams. A light beam can be defined as a distribution of field that fulfills the approximation in Eq. 20,i.e. is characterized by a dominant wave vector component, k(z) >> k(x) , k(y) . A beam is, therefore, the spatial equivalent of quasimonochromaticlight, where...
