Paper Abstract

We present an experimental demonstration of a class of beams, namely Frozen Waves, that can carry predetermined longitudinal intensity profiles in the presence of modeled loss. These waveforms consist of a superposition of equal frequency Bessel beams with different transverse and longitudinal wavenumbers, and are generated using a programmable spatial light modulator addressed by computer-generated hologram. Attenuation-resistant Frozen Waves can address challenges associated with light-matter interaction in absorbing media encountered in imaging, remote sensing, and particle micro-manipulation, to name a few.
