Observation of abruptly autofocusing waves
Abbreviated Journal Title
AIRY BEAMS; GENERATION; Optics
We report on the experimental observation of abruptly autofocusing waves. This interesting family of wave packets has been realized by using a radially symmetric Airy intensity distribution. As demonstrated in our experiments, these waves can exhibit unusual features, such as the ability to autofocus by following a parabolic trajectory toward their focus.
