Diffractive patterns of small cores generated by interference of Bessel beams.

Abstract

The characteristic dimensions of Bessel beams are fully determined by the corresponding Bessel functions. We consider a way of obtaining a narrower diameter of the central core of a diffractive pattern generated by the Bessel beams. The method relies on superposition of two or more Bessel beams with appropriately chosen amplitudes and widths. The disturbing influence of the aperture's edges can be eliminated by addition of the proper amplitude filter.
