2 Timely Accumulative Measurement Another type of time integral may apply if a measurement has to be taken accumulatively in time. 59) T1 where we have assumed that the accumulative measurement starts from t = T1 and ends at t = T2 . It is easy to see that Q(r) will be a constant in time for the above simple measurement of intensity, if the accumulative time period is long enough to be treated as infinity, T2 − T1 ∼ ∞, even if the expectation function is a well-defined pulse. The time-averaged intensity measured in timely accumulative measurement is defined as follows: I(r) T 1 = T2 − T1 T2 dt I(r, t).

The wavepacket consists of a “carrier” spherical wave and a 1D “envelope” Fkx A(x0 ) in the transverse dimension. The envelope restricts the values of kx within a certain limit, which implies a restricted propagation direction. The formation of the wavepacket is the result of a constructive– destructive interference among a large number of coherent subfields excited by the spatially coherent sub-sources. 25, the transverse coordinate x0 and the transverse wavevector kx are Fourier conjugate variables, and obviously, the far-field observation plane is effectively the Fourier transform plane of the aperture function.

The expectation value of intensity, I(r, t) , is the sum of all possible sub-pulses excited by all possible independent sub-sources. It is clear that each of the sub-pulses is in the form of a well-defined function in space-time due to the coherent superposition of its Fourier-modes.
