Paper Abstract

The problem of delta-shaped pulse of light diffraction from the aperture in the plane screen is formulated and solved in general form for the plane wave. Two examples are considered: diffraction from the slit and from the circular aperture. The analytical solution is given for the illuminated zone of the space behind the aperture and for the shadow. The temporal response is shown to consist of the direct wave and that scattered from the aperture edges. At large distances from the screen the Fourier transform of the solution coincide with well-known results for the plane monochrome wave.
