Physical-Optics Anatomy of the Gouy Phase Shift

Jena, 16 September 2019, EOS Topical Meeting on Diffractive Optics

Using purely mathematical arguments in an electromagnetic approach to the propagation from one of the focus to the other, we obtain a physical-optics solution which reveals, in an isolated manner, all the effects which we know must appear, and dispel the geometrical-phyisical optics dichotomy in our understanding of the Gouy phase.
