Abstract

We apply the tools of the fractional calculus to introduce new fractional-order beam solutions to the paraxial wave equation that can be regarded as intermediate solutions between the known integral-order solutions. We restrict our attention to the fractionalization of the elegant and standard Hermite–Gaussian beams.
