In this paper we illustrate how the localization of the stationary two-dimensional solution of the propagation equation strongly depends on the features of its spatio-temporal spectral bandwidth. We especially investigate the role of the ultra-broad temporal support and of the spatial bandwidth of the spectrum on the high localization in one spatial dimension of ”Bessel-like” or ”blade-like” beams, quasi-stationarily propagating in normally dispersive materials, and potentially interesting for microfabrication applications.
