Paper Abstract

Another way to explain the autoimaging effect is to consider it as the Fresnel diffraction field obtained with the Huygens-Fresnel model using Young spherical waves generated by each transparent point in the ruling. This model has been used by Latimer and Crouse (1993) and later commented by Szwaykowski (1993). Here we present another analysis more detailed and rigorous than these, using the same Huygens-Fresnel model.
