Abstract

We demonstrate theoretically and experimentally that a finite Airy beam changes its trajectory while maintaining its acceleration in nonlinear photorefractive media. During this process, the spatial spectrum reshapes dramatically, leading to negative (or positive) spectral defects on the initial spectral distribution under a self-focusing (or defocusing) nonlinearity.
