Wigner distribution function of circularly truncated light beams

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Truncating a light beam is expressed as a convolution of its Wigner distribution function and the WDF of the truncating aperture. The WDF of a circular aperture is derived and an approximate expression - which is exact in the space and the spatial-frequency origin and whose integral over the spatial frequency takes the exact value - is presented.
