Abstract

The present contribution is concerned with an exact frame-based pulsed-beams expansion of planar aperture time-dependent electromagnetic fields. The propagating field is described as a discrete superposition of tilted, shifted and delayed electromagnetic pulsed-beam waveobjects over the frame spectral lattice. Explicit asymptotic expressions for the electromagnetic pulsed-beam propagators are obtained for the commonly used pulsed-quadratic windows.
