Abstract

We demonstrate both experimentally and theoretically controlled acceleration of one- and two-dimensional Airy beams in optically induced refractive-index potentials. Enhancement as well as reduction of beam acceleration are realized by changing the index gradient, while the beam shape is maintained during propagation through the linear optical potential. Our results of active acceleration manipulation in graded media are pertinent to Airy-type beam propagation in various environments.
