Abstract:

Vector plane-wave superpositions defined by a given set of orthonormal scalar functions on a two- or three- dimensional manifold are treated. We present a technique for composing orthonormal electromagnetic beams in complex media and free space. New families of exact time-harmonic solutions of the homogeneous Maxwell equations in linear media isotropic, chiral, anisotropic, and bianisotropic and free space, which describe orthonormal electro magnetic beams, are obtained.
