Paper Abstract

A possibility of nucleation of wave front singularities kind of vortex dipoles under combination of two smooth wave fronts with Gaussian amplitude distribution substantiated on the base of a parabolic equation is realized experimentally. Trajectories and space dynamics of a vortex dipole and its conversion are studied as the function of the propagation distance.
