Abstract:

This report presents the basic principles of a new system of optical scaling and modeling. These principles apply to any optical situation in which the illumination is totally coherent and for which the paraxial approximation is valid. The primary scaling relation is a geometrical similarity between the output diffraction patterns of an original optical system and its model. The optical scaling based on these principles is called ordinary scaling. Author
