ABCD Gaussian Beam Propagation (OS X)

ABCD Gaussian Beam Propagation allows you to propagate Gaussian laser beams through standard optical elements (free space, dielectric, thin lens, and curved mirror) and monitor the beam properties. This is a straightforward multiplication of two-by-two matrices and its application on a user-defined complex radius. The program simply makes a point-and-click interface to an engine doing standard ABCD matrices and complex radius calculations. It provides a research tool for people working with lasers or could be used (to some extent) as a teaching aid for an undergraduate course in optics. This version fixes bugs.
