Gaussian beam and disk overlap with shift

Description

Calculate the overlap integral of a 2-D Gaussian beam and a uniform disk, including a shift between the centers of the beam and disk.

Usage

1
beamDiskOverlap(s = 0, r = 1, theta.fwhm = 1)

Arguments

s

Shift between centers

r

Disk radius

theta.fwhm

Gaussian beam FWHM

Details

Converts the 2-D integral to 1-D for speed. Use consistent units.

Value

Value of the overlap integral, normalized to unity for a beam much smaller than the disk.
