Abstract

Nondiffracting beams are of interest for optical metrology applications because the size of the beam does not change as the beam propagates. However, accuracy can be increased if the diameter of the beam is smaller. One technique for accomplishing this is to use the dark axial intensity profile associated with a higher-order nondiffracting Bessel function beam. We generate these higher-order Bessel function beams with a programmable spatial light modulator. We study the intensity patterns and the phase dependence of these nondiffracting beams. In addition, we examine interference effects caused by recording these patterns onto a binary spatial light modulator.
