Paper Abstract

The effect of negative imaging of an extended source of polychromatic radiation by an opaque screen is elaborated. It is shown that such imaging is of geometrical optics (shadow) nature rather than of diffraction one, as it was assumed earlier. On the base of the geometrical optics model, we define spatial domain behind an opaque screen where the negative imaging is realized, and determine the dependencies of the image parameters on the experimental conditions. Negative images are demonstrated for the first time, and the qualitative confirmation of the geometrical optics model is given.
