|Abstract:||A comprehensive matrix method based upon a two-dimensional form of Simpson's 1/3 rule (2DSC method) to integrate numerically the vector form of the fundamental diffraction integrals is described for calculating the characteristics of the focal region for a converging polarized spherical wave. The only approximation needed in using the 2DSC method is the Kirchhoff boundary conditions at the aperture. The 2DSC method can be used to study the focusing of vector beams with different polarizations and profiles and for different filters over a large range of numerical apertures or Fresnel numbers. © 2005 Taylor & Francis Group Ltd.|
