Paper Abstract

We determine field distributions in the pupil of a high NA lens, that give, for a given power incident on the lens, the maximum electric field amplitude in focus in a specific direction. We consider in particular the cases of maximum longitudinal and maximum transverse components. The distribution of the maximum longitudinal component in the focal plane is narrower than that of the focused Airy spot and hence can give higher resolution in imaging.
