# Discrete wavelet structure and discrete energy of classical plane light waves

@article{Zhang2020DiscreteWS, title={Discrete wavelet structure and discrete energy of classical plane light waves}, author={Xingchu Zhang and Wei-long She}, journal={arXiv: Optics}, year={2020} }

In this letter, the wavelet transform is used to decompose the classical linearly polarized plane light wave into a series of discrete Morlet wavelets. It is found that the energy of the light wave can be discrete, associated with its discrete wavelet this http URL is also found that the changeable energy of a basic plane light wave packet or wave train of wave vector $\mathord{\buildrel{\lower3pt\hbox{$\scriptscriptstyle\rightharpoonup$}}\over k} $ and with discrete wavelet structure can be… Expand
