Abstract
By means of the Huygens-Fresnel diffraction integral, the propagation expression of a laser beam passing through a hard-edged aperture is derived. The effects of the bandwidth on the transverse intensity distributions of the beam in the near and far fields are analyzed. It is found that, in the near field, the beam uniformity is improved with increasing the bandwidth and the broader the spectrum, the smoother the transverse intensity distribution is. Intensity spikes produced by low-frequency diffraction are eliminated in the diffraction patterns and the transverse intensity distribution near axis tends to smooth when the bandwidth increases. The intensity spikes produced by high-frequency diffraction still exist with increasing the bandwidth, but the amplitudes and numbers of them decrease. In the far field, there are only a few differences among the transverse intensity distributions of the beams with different bandwidthes. However, The secondary maximum intensity still presents for the beam with small bandwidth, and it decreases with increasing the bandwidth and is eliminated with large bandwidth.
