Generation of attenuation-compensating Airy beams
MetadataShow full item record
We present an attenuation-corrected "nondiffracting" Airy beam. The correction factor can be adjusted to deliver a beam that exhibits an adjustable exponential intensity increase or decrease over a finite distance. A digital micro-mirror device that shapes both amplitude and phase is used to experimentally verify the propagation of these beams through air and partially absorbing media.
