Paper Abstract

The orthonormal set of Hermite-Gaussian modes maps into another orthonormal set after propagation through a first-order optical system. A compact expression for these modes is derived. The introduction of a novel class of orthonormal modes is useful for non-interferometric phase recovery techniques and simplifies the design of mode converters and information processing systems.
