Paper Abstract

Structured coherent optical beams including optical vortices, hollow Gaussian beam, and Airy beam have found wide range of applications in variety of fields in science and technology. All existing techniques used to date to generate such beams suffer from different limitations including lower output power and restricted wavelength coverage. On the other hand, interactions of such beams with nonlinear media are mostly unexplored. We have been involved in the study of nonlinear interaction of optical beams with different spatial structures. Here, we discuss our recent results on nonlinear generation of various structured laser beams including optical vortices, perfect vortices, Airy beam, and hollow Gaussian beam and some of their applications
