Paper Abstract

We generate two dimensional Airy beams using a cubic phase mask and study its propagation through photorefractive material experimentally. The diffraction free nature as well as the acceleration of Airy beams is observed. Using beam propagation method (BPM), we confirm the experimental results. We also study the effect of an applied electric field on the propagation of Airy beams through photorefractive materials numerically. It is observed that the applied field leads to interaction between the lobes of Airy beams.
