Abstract

Using hyperbolic rotations, we show that a new class of skewed, nonspreading, accelerating Airy wave packets is possible in optical bidispersive systems. Their obliquity factor is found to have a profound effect on their spatiotemporal acceleration dynamics. Pertinent examples are provided.
