Definition: beam of optical radiation whose electric field amplitude distribution is Gaussian when measured across a cross-section

NOTE – When such a beam is circular in cross-section, the amplitude is:

Е(r) = E (0) exp [– (r / w)2]

where r is the distance from beam centre and w is the radius at which the amplitude is 1/e of its value on the axis.
