13-7. Fresnel Diffraction by Square Aperture

(b) Diffraction pattern at four axial positions marked by the arrows in (a) and corresponding to the Fresnel numbers NF=10, 1, 0.5, and 0.1. The shaded area represents the geometrical shadow of the slit. The dashed lines at represent the width of the Fraunhofer pattern in the far field. Where the dashed lines coincide with the edges of the geometrical shadow, the Fresnel number NF=0.5.

( )dDx /=

Fresnel Diffraction from a slit of width D = 2a. (a) Shaded area is the geometrical shadow of the aperture. The dashed line is the width of the Fraunhofer diffracted beam.

From Huygens principle to Fresnel-Kirchhoff diffraction

Huygens principle

Given wave-front at t

Allow wavelets to evolve for time t

r = c t

New wavefront

What about r direction?(-phase delay when the secondary wavelets, Hecht, 3.5.2, 3nd Ed)

Construct the wave front tangent to the wavelets

Every point on a wave front is a source of secondary wavelets.i.e. particles in a medium excited by electric field (E) re-radiate in all directionsi.e. in vacuum, E, B fields associated with wave act as sources of additional fields

Kirchhoff modificationFresnels shortcomings :

He did not mention the existence of backward secondary wavelets, however, there also would be a reverse wave traveling back toward the source.He introduce a quantity of the obliquity factor, but he did little more than conjecture about this kind.

Gustav Kirchhoff : Fresnel-Kirchhoff diffraction theoryA more rigorous theory based directly on the solution of the differential wave equation.He, although a contemporary of Maxwell, employed the older elastic-solid theory of light.He found F() = (1 + cos )/2. F(0) = 1 in the forward direction, F() = 0 with the back wave.

The average distance of successive zones from P differs by /2 -> half-period zones.Thus, the contributions of the zones to the disturbance at P alternate in sign,

For an unobstructed wave, the last term n=0.

Whereas, a freely propagating spherical wave from the source Po to P is

(b) The first zone is uncovered if point P is placed father away,

(c) Only the first zone is covered by an opaque disk,

Fresnel zone-plate lens has multiple foci.

Sinusoidal zone plate: This type has a single focal point.

Binary zone plate: The areas of each ring, both light and dark, are equal.It has multiple focal points.

Fresnel zone-plate lens

For soft X-ray focusing

Fresnel lens: This type has a single focal point.Focusing efficiency approaches 100%.
