Observation of the asymmetric Bessel beams with arbitrary orientation using a digital micromirror device.

Recently, V. V. Kotlyar et al. [Opt. Lett.39, 2395 (2014)] have theoretically proposed a novel kind of three-parameter diffraction-free beam with a crescent profile, namely, the asymmetric Bessel (aB) beam. The asymmetry degree of such nonparaxial modes was shown to depend on a nonnegative real parameter c. We present a more generalized asymmetric Bessel… CONTINUE READING
