Nondiffracting accelerating waves : Weber waves and parabolic momentum

  title={Nondiffracting accelerating waves : Weber waves and parabolic momentum},
  author={Miguel A Bandres},
Diffraction is one of the universal phenomena of physics, and a way to overcome it has always represented a challenge for physicists. In order to control diffraction, the study of structured waves has become decisive. Here, we present a specific class of nondiffracting spatially accelerating solutions of the Maxwell equations: the Weber waves. These nonparaxial waves propagate along parabolic trajectories while approximately preserving their shape. They are expressed in an analytic closed form… CONTINUE READING
