Abstract

The diffraction patterns of a conical lens illuminated by plane and spherical waves have been intensively investigated. A practical method is described to transform the Bessel profile of a zero-order Bessel beam into a caustic one through the use of a combination of a conical lens and a cylindrical lens, which in turn transforms the field generated by the conical lens. The cylindrical lens was illuminated by a zero-order Bessel beam, producing a lips caustic beam. It is shown that this type of wave tends to regenerate during propagation, although the waves are severely perturbed.
