Abstract

A general method is presented for the determination of the time-averaged power associated with the self-interaction and the mutual interaction of cylindrically symmetric complex-argument Laguerre–Gauss beams. The method is also applied for the determination of two useful moments of the time-averaged Poynting vector.
