Abstract
Based on the vectorial Raleigh-Sommerfeld diffraction integral, an analytical propagation equation of vectorial nonparaxial hollow Gaussian beams (HGBs) through an annular aperture is derived. The corresponding closed-forms for a circular aperture, a circular black screen, and unapertured case are given as special cases of the general results. The typical numerical examples are given to illustrate our analytical results. It is shown that the f parameter plays an important role in determining the nonparaxiality of vectorial apertured HGBs.
