Communication modes in large-aperture approximation
2007 (English)In: Optics Letters, ISSN 0146-9592, E-ISSN 1539-4794, Vol. 32, no 6, 611-613 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Simplified versions of the communication modes in the Fresnel domain are derived when the system apertures are large. The approximate modes, which are in the form of spherical waves and sinc functions with a spherical curvature, give physical insight into the communication modes approach and the basic limits of free-space optical communication systems. They also show that Gabor's information theory is readily derived from the communication modes.
