Abstract

To controllably deflect the Airy beam in a wide range dynamic, the method of combining the classical Airy cubic phase with a diffraction blazed grating phase was adopted in this paper. By dynamically adjusting the grating parameters, the transverse self-accelerating Airy beam allows arbitrary deflection, and the deflected position can be controlled precisely. The mathematical model of the Airy beam optical field distributions generated by the combined phase patterns were proposed to explain the feasibility. Its correctness was ultimately demonstrated by the experimental results. It is significant to use this method for the Airy beam deflection control in high-precision closed-loop aiming systems.
