Abstract

We propose a single-beam generation scheme to obtain a bottle-hollow (BH) beam using a binary phase mask and a focusing lens. The resulting BH beam is shown to possess an open bottle-shaped null intensity region, which has two hollow tube-shaped null intensity regions located on two opposite sides of this bottle. It is found that this scheme works identically under incident illumination with radial or azimuthal polarization. Another advantage of this scheme is that the same binary mask can be employed as a focusing lens with different choices of numerical aperture (NA). Furthermore, we observe that the length of the BH beam is inversely proportional to NA 2 while the diameters of both the bottle and hollow regions are inversely proportional to NA; thereby leading to an adjustable BH beam. This BH beam may find attractive applications in noninvasive manipulation of microscopic particles over large distances.
