Abstract

The transformation of radially traveling cylindrical waves between two cylindrical coordinate systems with skew (nonparallel) axes is derived for the first time to our knowledge. The analytical procedure is based on the complex integral representation of the Hankel function and appropriate contour deformation and change of variables to obtain a final Fourier transform expression of the cylindrical wave in the new system. Scalar and vector waves are considered. This new result is a powerful tool for the rigorous analysis of scattering and coupling in nonparallel optical fiber configurations.
