Abstract

The mathematical expressions for the coherent-mode decomposition of Bessel–Gauss (BG) beams have been derived for the general case, for which the cross correlation of modes is included, and the inverse problem of calculating the mode parameters from the given M2 factor has been solved for BG beams.
