Paper Abstract

We present an analysis of the dynamics of conical waves partially obstructed by opaque objects. The analysis yields the incoming and outgoing conical waves that form the Bessel beams (or any other propagation-invariant beams) when opaque obstructions are set on and off axis. The results show that the invariance of Bessel beams with finite transverse extension is no longer maintained under the mentioned conditions.
