Paper Abstract

A novel experimental arrangement to produce high-order Bessel beams is proposed. The system is based on the decomposition of the even and odd spatial components of the Bessel beam. The reconstruction is made with a Mach-Zender interferometer. The original annular squeme of Durnin is used to generate each component of the Bessel beam. The main advantage of our setup is that the annular transmittances have only discrete changes of phase.
