Abstract

Degree of paraxiality (DOP) of an anisotropic hollow multi-Gaussian Schell-model (HMGSM) beam is discussed, and the influence of parameters of the beam source on its DOP is studied. It is shown that the parameters of the beam source, including the anisotropy, boundary characteristic, beam waist width, and beam coherence width, may play an important role in its DOP. Moreover, in order to illustrate the behaviors of DOP, the far-field divergence angle of this beam source has also been investigated.
