5 July 2000 Second-order phase theory in multiple-aperture systems
Author Affiliations +
We establish the groundwork for a phase theory applicable to multiple-aperture systems. We examine the phase behavior of a reference system with rotational symmetry, and then examine the phase behavior of a system with only a single plane of symmetry assumed. A comparison of the two systems leads to the mathematical conditions for which one branch of a multiple-aperture system has ideal behavior.
