9.12 A diffraction screen S„ and its complementary diffraction screen Sk. If there
are sources inside S (in region I) which give rise to a field ^i(x), then in the
absence of either screen the field i/»(x) in region II is given by the Kirchhoff
integral ...

diffraction patterns in the Fresnel and Fraunhofer zones show characteristic
differences which come from the fact that for Fresnel diffraction the region of the
diffracting system nearest the observation point is of greatest importance,
whereas for ...
