Abstract

A method of focusing electromagnetic waves by diffraction alone is proposed. An incident beam is diffracted by a series of circular apertures which have their diffracting edges falling on a surface of revolution. A geometrical consideration of the principle involved is presented, followed by a series of experimental results.
