Paper Abstract

We propose and demonstrate a transverse self-accelerating Bessel-like beam generator based on a graded index multimode optical fiber(GIF). The single-mode fiber and the graded-index multimode fiber are spliced with a defined offset. The offset Δx and the GIF length L affect the final properties of the Bessel-like beam, here we choose the offset Δx=20μm and the GIF length L=430μm to be optimal. The beam accelerates along the designed parabolic path up to 250μm in z direction and 40μm in x direction, the curvature of bending is 16% (40μm/250μm, x/z). This transverse self-accelerating Bessel-like beam generator based on the graded index multimode optical fiber constitutes a new development for high-precision micro particles experiments and manipulations because of its simple structure, high integration and small size.
