Abstract

We introduce a technique to generate arbitrary nondiffracting beams. Using a genetic algorithm that uses a Gaussian weight function merged with spatial spectrum engineering techniques, we show that it is possible to obtain the angular spectrum representation of arbitrary light patterns, thus demonstrating their nondiffracting properties.
