Title: The Gaussian Laser Angular Distribution in HYDRA's 3D Laser Ray Trace Package

Abstract

In this note, the angular distribution of rays launched by the 3D LZR ray trace package is derived for Gaussian beams (npower==2) with bm model=3±. Beams with bm model=+3 have a nearly at distribution, and beams with bm model=-3 have a nearly linear distribution when the spot size is large compared to the wavelength.
