Lens optics and the continuity problems of the ABCD matrix

Baskal, S.
Kim, Y. S.
Paraxial lens optics is discussed to study the continuity properties of the ABCD beam transfer matrix. The two-by-two matrix for the one-lens camera-like system can be converted to an equi-diagonal form by a scale transformation, leaving the off-diagonal elements invariant. It is shown that the matrix remains continuous during the focusing process, but this transition is not analytic. However, its first derivative is still continuous, which leads to the concept of 'tangential continuity'. It is then shown that this tangential continuity is applicable to ABCD matrices pertinent to periodic optical systems, where the equi-diagonalization is achieved by a similarity transformation using rotations. It is also noted that both the scale transformations and the rotations can be unified within the framework of Hermitian transformations.


Nonlinear optical properties of a Woods-Saxon quantum dot under an electric field
AYTEKİN, ÖZLEM; Turgut, Sadi; Unal, V. Ustoglu; Aksahin, E.; Tomak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2013-12-01)
A theoretical study of the effect of the confining potential on the nonlinear optical properties of two dimensional quantum dots is performed. A three-parameter Woods-Saxon potential is used within the density matrix formalism. The control of confinement by three parameters and an applied electric field gives one quite an advantage in studying their effects on the nonlinear properties. The coefficients investigated include the optical rectification, second and third-harmonic generation and the change in the...
Efficient computation of 2D point-spread functions for diffractive lenses
Ayazgok, Suleyman; Öktem, Sevinç Figen (The Optical Society, 2020-01-10)
Diffractive lenses, such as Fresnel zone plates, photon sieves, and their modified versions, have been of significant recent interest in high-resolution imaging applications. As the advent of diffractive lens systems with different configurations expands, the fast and accurate simulation of these systems becomes crucial for both the design and image reconstruction tasks. Here we present a fast and accurate method for computing the 2D point-spread function (PSF) of an arbitrary diffractive lens. The method i...
Exact Pseudospin Symmetric Solution of the Dirac Equation for Pseudoharmonic Potential in the Presence of Tensor Potential
AYDOĞDU, OKTAY; Sever, Ramazan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2010-04-01)
Under the pseudospin symmetry, we obtain exact solution of the Dirac equation for the pseudoharmonic potential in the presence of the tensor potential with arbitrary spin-orbit coupling quantum number kappa. The energy eigenvalue equation of the Dirac particles is found and the corresponding radial wave functions are presented in terms of confluent hypergeometric functions. We investigate the tensor potential dependence of the energy of the each state in the pseudospin doublet. It is shown that degeneracy b...
Ground-state properties, vortices, and collective excitations in a two-dimensional Bose-Einstein condensate with gravitylike interatornic attraction
Keleş, Ahmet; Tanatar, B. (American Physical Society (APS), 2008-05-01)
We study the ground-state properties of a Bose-Einstein condensate with short-range repulsion and gravitylike 1 /r interatomic attraction in two-dimensions (2D). Using the variational approach we obtain the ground-state energy and analyze the stability of the condensate for a range of interaction strengths in 2D. We also determine the collective excitations at zero temperature using the time-dependent variational method. We analyze the properties of the Thomas-Fermi-gravity and gravity regimes, and we exami...
Object reconstruction from in-line Fresnel holograms without explicit depth focusing
Ozgen, MT; Tuncer, Temel Engin (SPIE-Intl Soc Optical Eng, 2004-06-01)
We propose two computational techniques for extracting object cross-sectional shape information from digitized in-line Fresnel holograms that do not require prior knowledge of object depths but recover relative depth information along the way. The first algorithm is applicable to hologram segments involving a single particle only. It is based on estimating Fourier transform magnitude and phase of the particle from those of the hologram segment. The second algorithm conducts a joint inverse filtering and dep...
