Paper Abstract

On the basis of a representation of the general solution of the Maxwell equations in terms of the angular spectrum of the electromagnetic field, the concept of the so-called closest solution to a given field is analyzed. In particular, we investigate the spatial profile and the polarization structure of the closest field to a polarized Gaussian beam.
