Abstract: The diffraction of light is considered for a plane screen with an open bounded aperture. The corresponding solution behind the screen is given explicitly in terms of the Fourier transforms of the tangential components of the electric boundary field on the screen. All components of the electric as well as the magnetic field vector are considered. We introduce solutions with global finite energy behind the screen and describe them in terms of two boundary potential functions. This new approach leads to a decoupling of the vectorial boundary equations on the screen in the case of global finite energy. For the physically admissible solutions, i.e. the solutions with local finite energy, we derive a characterisation in terms of the electric boundary fields.
