version (86.2 KB) by

Calculate the parabolic nondiffracting beams (Weber beams) or the Helmholtz equation.



View License

This function calculates the parabolic nondiffracting beams (Weber nondiffracting beams) of the Helmholtz and paraxial wave equation. Their transverse structure is described by parabolic cylinder functions (Weber functions). Like the Bessel or Mathieu beams, the Weber beams form an orthogonal and complete set in the sense that any nondiffracting beam can be represented as a linear superposition of parabolic beams.
