Abstract

We demonstrate the experimental generation of a fractional Bessel beam by holographic means. Such fractional modes of Bessel beams possess an intrinsic opening gap across concentric intensity rings on propagation. We also show that the opening gaps within the fractional modes are diffraction free for a working distance while a fractional helical wave front is maintained.
