A Simple Derivation of the Fresnel Diffraction Formula
Proceedings of the IEEE
In contrast with the conventional technique of deriving the Fresnel diffraction formula using Green's functions and the integral theorem of Helmholtz and Kirchhoff, we present a simple direct derivation of Fresnel diffraction by starting out from the scalar wave equation.
