Generation of spiraling high-order Bessel beams

Abstract

Spiraling Bessel beams of arbitrary order are created by illuminating an apertured axicon and a hologram with a single-ringed Laguerre–Gaussian beam. The high-order beam rotates around the propagating axis with a hollow center and can be regarded as the hollow spiraling beam. Such beams have distinct advantages, which offer a direct method for micro-fabrication applications, especially for cold atom guiding, due to their inherent central hollow region and their non-diffracting feature.
