Paper Abstract

New methods for production of pseudo-nondiffracting Bessel light beams with phase singularities of different topological charge have been developed and proved experimentally. It is found out that nonlinear-optical processes of frequency doubling and sum-frequency generation allow to control formation and annihilation of dislocations. The possibility of realization of arithmetic operations using this principle is proved. When Gaussian beam interferes with M-order Bessel beam having M-order dislocation, the dislocation disintegrates on M parallel quasi-nondiffracting beams packed compactly. Rotating of optical beams aggregate on required angle takes place when phase difference between interfering fields is modulated. New principle of optical inter-connections is proposed on this base.
