Abstract Abstract. The phase and the group velocities are calcu-lated in a three-dimensional neighbourhood of the focus of an aberration-free lens illuminated by a spatially Gaus-sian beam. The Gouy phase shift caused by the diffraction results in superluminal pulse propagation on the optical axis within the Rayleigh range. PACS: 42.10, 42.60.E The study of the intensity and phase distribution of a con-verging spherical light wave passing through a circular aperture has been undertaken by several authors [1—3]. One of the most interesting results of these treatments is that the phase behaviour near the focus differs from that of a converging perfect spherical wave. This phase differ-ence discovered by Gouy is called phase anomaly. The predictions of the theoretical treatments have been veri-
