Abstract

The propagation characteristics of the fundamental Airy wave are obtained; the intensity distribution is the same as that for a point electric dipole situated at the origin and oriented normal to the propagation direction. The propagation characteristics of the modified fundamental Airy wave are determined. These characteristics are the same as those for the fundamental Gaussian wave provided that an equivalent waist is identified for the Airy wave. In general, the waves are localized spatially with the peak in the propagation direction.
