Author(s): Carlos I. Robledo-Sanchez; A. Jaramillo; D. M. Gale; Gilberto Camacho

Paper Abstract

The equation for the conservation of irradiance is deduced from the paraxial wave equation. This formulation is presented in an optics Masters course, with the aim of showing to students its utility in the recuperation of the phase of a wavefront with just the measurements of irradiance.
