Abstract : The intent of this report is to synopsize the Scaler and Vector Diffraction Phenomena that characterize the electromagnetic effects of the Fresnel (nearfield) and Fraunhofer (far-field) Diffraction. Included in this report are the author's views concerning electromagnetic phenomena at the aperture by employing Babinet's Principle. (Modified author abstract)
