Paper Abstract

In this paper we demonstrate that the propagation of a light wave into multi-element optical system can be treated in the framework of the fractional Fourier transform. This result provide new insight into wave propagation and multi-element resonators as well as the possibility of exploiting this result as a mathematical tool in analyzing such systems. This mathematical formulation gives the direct relationship between input and output of the light field, the confinement stability condition, the diameters of the beam at the mirrors and the diameter of the beam waist.
