Abstract

Nondiffracting Bessel–Gauss beams are assumed as the superposition of infinite numbers of Gaussian beams whose wave vectors lie on a cone. Based on such a description, different methods are suggested to generate these fields. In this paper, we followed an active scheme to generate these beams. By introducing an axicon-based resonator, we designed the appropriate resonator, studied its resonance modes, and analyzed the beam propagation outside the resonator. Experimentally, we succeeded to obtain Bessel–Gauss beams of the first kind and zero order. We also investigated the changes in effective parameters on the output beam, both theoretically and experimentally.
