Paper Abstract

The self-imaging effect can be obtained as the result of the diffraction of a plane wave by the periodic structure. It is known as the Talbot effect. The self-imaging phenomenon is discussed here also from the new viewpoint as a class of the propagation-invariant wavefields. The repetition of an object can be achieved by the superposition of nondiffracting beams.
