Abstract

A large class of electromagnetic beams (including Gaussian beams and laser sheets) complies with symmetry relations that are then mathematically expressed in the framework of the generalized Lorenz–Mie theory (GLMT). In particular, by using such symmetry relations in evaluating the beam-shape coefficients, one can efficiently speed up GLMT computations.
