Modeling coherent propagation aids accurate coupling

Robert S. Upton, R. John Koshel

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Tools and techniques for modeling the propagation of coherent fields-Fourier methods applied to Gaussian-beam decomposition and the finite-difference beam-propagation method-can help ensure accurate and efficient coupling. But all perspectives, from the macroscopic to the microscopic, must be considered.
