Abstract

We demonstrate, both analytically and experimentally, that a broad class of vector bottle beams can be synthesized by passing a Gaussian beam through a uniaxial 𝑐-cut crystal. The polarization state and shape of the optical bottle can be easily reconfigured by tuning the input beam polarization and the crystal parameters.
