Paper Abstract

New parameters are proposed which characterize arbitrary multimode tridimensional laser beams propagating through ABCD optical systems. Such definitions are shown to be related with the bidimensional concept of beam quality. Dependence on the propagation distance and coherence properties of the input field is illustrated by means of some examples.
