In this paper it is shown how one can use Bessel beams to obtain a stationary localized wave field with high transverse localization, and whose longitudinal intensity pattern can assume any desired shape within a chosen interval 0 </= z </= L of the propagation axis. This intensity envelope remains static, i.e., with velocity v =0; and because of this we call "Frozen Waves" the new solutions to the wave equations (and, in particular, to the Maxwell equations). These solutions can be used in… Expand
