Jolab is a free and open-source Julia package to simulate light propagation in optical systems. The package implements rigorous, full-wave optical models to simulate light propagation on setups. The package is built to be easily usable by any user independent of its background in theoretical optics.

Gaussian beam without approximation

We use the angular spectrum representation to compute exactly the Gaussian beam close to the waist (w0) in the case of highly nonparaxial field (w0<λ). The computation is done in the vectorial case for a polarized Gaussian beam. In the area of the waist, the contribution of the propagating and evanescent waves is discussed. Moreover, the Gaussian wave is developed in terms of series, which permits to get analytical expressions for both propagating and evanescent waves when the observation is close to the waist.
