Paper Abstract

This paper gives an overview of operator-based models that seem to be especially interesting for laser scanning microscopy. These methods were developed by Nazarathy et. al. in a series of papers about 10 years ago. In these papers they demonstrated that both the operators and Gaussian beams can be represented by matrices. We implemented the operator algebra in Mathematic and we also show by some simple examples how to analyze paraxial systems. A number of empirical experiments have also been performed to verify the validity of the model.
