Abstract

A generalized analysis of the wave equation in a lens-like medium by the perturbation method shows that the usual analysis of the TEM approximation is not correct for the case in which the electric permittivity distribution is almost symmetric with the center axis of the lens-like medium. The correct electromagnetic wave modes are presented.
