Abstract

This study introduces an undefined self-imaging phenomenon, called here the pseudo-self-imaging phenomenon. The relative phases of the guided modes were used to discover how the pseudo-self-images are formed. The pseudo-self-image was found and measured experimentally. The experimental results showed that both the pseudo-self-image and the 0-dB self-image have similar intensity values and have opposite positions in the lateral direction.
