A note on an accelerating finite energy Airy beam

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

A recently derived Airy beam solution to the (1+1)D paraxial equation is shown to obey two salient properties characterizing arbitrary finite energy solutions associated with second-order diffraction; the centroid of the beam is a linear function of the range and its variance varies quadratically in range. Some insight is provided regarding the local acceleration dynamics of the beam. It is shown, specifically, that the interpretation of this beam as accelerating, i.e., one characterized by a nonlinear lateral shift, depends significantly on the parameter a entering into the solution.
