Abstract

We have studied the increase of the power contained in Bessel beams generated using the Durnin ring technique, which is compatible with microelectromechanical systems technology. Increasing the ring width to increase the output power will lead to deviation from the Bessel beam profile and its diffraction properties. In this work, the effect of the ring width on the generated beam is investigated. An analytical expression for the generated beam depth of focus (DOF) is obtained. A Fourier optics model is also developed to estimate the transverse field profile. The theoretical predictions are assisted by numerical simulations and experimental measurements. The developed models allow engineering the beam diffraction properties to make the necessary compromise between the DOF and the amount of energy carried by the beam depending on the targeted application.
