Abstract

We have developed a generalized closed-form representation of the virtually imaged phased array (VIPA) output profile based on a 3D vectorial Gaussian beam formulation. Tracing the input vectorial elliptic Gaussian beam (GB), the output profile of the VIPA is represented as an array of virtual images. Furthermore, employing GB propagation and summing up all the virtual image profiles, the VIPA output profile has been calculated on a vertical plane at an arbitrary distance from the device. Finally, the derived closed-form representation is applied to the different sources (i.e., circular and elliptic GBs) and the results are compared with previous work.
