Abstract
Consider the light propagation in a weak-inhomogeneous medium ( 1/2p An/n << 1 for distances on the order of ?, where n is the refractive index of the mediumn and ? is the light wavelength). It is known that for the conditions of this problem, the Maxwell equa-tions for monochromatic electric field component in Fock-Leontovich paraxial (parabolic) approximation can be reduced to the equivalent Schrodinger equation (1-3). Thus, if Z-axis of a rectangular coordinate system X, Z is chosen in the direction of light propagation, then for the reduced field ?(X, Z) = no1/2E (X,Z) exp {-i K oz nodZ}
