Paper Abstract

A wave-optics model has been used to describe fast focusing phenomena by a thin or thick lens. In particular, lenses with a hyperboloidal surface profile have the best focusing property for a collimated beam and have been studied using vector field analysis. It was found that the relative focal intensity decreases substantially comparing to a thin lens when the f-number becomes small.
