Pseudo-modal Expansions for Generating Random Electromagnetic Beams

Document Type


Publication Date



Excerpt: We derive two pseudo-modal expansions that provide insight into the structure of stationary electromagnetic sources and can be used for their physical realization and in computer simulations. Both expansions are derived from the vectorial version of Bochner’s theorem of functional analysis.
