Dynamics of three-Airy beams carrying optical vortices
We study numerically and demonstrate experimentally a novel type of singular optical beams formed by the phase imprinting of an optical vortex into the structure of the three-Airy beams. In contrast to a vortex-free product of three Airy beams, in this type of singular-Airy beam, the vortex in the beam axis causes a twist in the beam transverse intensity profile with propagation. Such a new type of singular beams appears especially attractive for applications in optical micromanipulation.
