Abstract

We introduce a new kind of partially coherent beam with nonconventional correlation function named rectangular Laguerre–Gaussian-correlated Schell-model (LGCSM) beam, whose degree of coherence is of rectangular symmetry, and analyze its propagation properties. We find that the rectangular LGCSM beam exhibits self-splitting properties on propagation in free space, i.e., the initial single beam spot evolves into (m + 1) × (n + 1) beam spots on propagation with m and n being the beam orders, which are totally different from that of a circular or elliptical LGCSM beam. The self-splitting properties of a rectangular LGCSM beam are also different from other self-splitting beam whose initial single beam spot only splits into two or four beam spots on propagation in free space. We also find that a focused rectangular LGCSM beam exhibits splitting and combining properties on propagation. Furthermore, we carry out experimental generation of a rectangular LGCSM beam and verify the splitting and combining properties of such beam focused by a thin lens. The rectangular LGCSM beam will be useful for manipulating multiple particles or attacking multiple targets simultaneously.
