Abstract

Gabor’s expansion of an optical field in a discrete two-dimensional superposition of Gaussian elementary beams is extended here to incorporate the so-called Cauchy beams. The resultant expansion scheme has an advantage over the commonly used Gaussian beam representation in situations involving critical-angle refraction of light beams at a dielectric interface.
