Paper Abstract

Propagation, transformation and self-consistent solution of laser beams could be treated by advanced matrix methods clearly, e.g.: misaligned laser systems are analyzed by augmented 4x4 matrix, phase conjugate mirrors are described by matrices with variable elements, nonsymmetrical laser systems are treated by tensor ABCD law, optical arrays are performed as pseudo-conjugators, a new Fresnel number for Gaussian beams is defined and finally, hard aperture is written in terms of matrix and so, all the transformation of laser beams has to be reconsidered.
