Paper Abstract

A new method of forming nondiffracting and nondispersing azimuthally (or radially) polarized pulsed Bessel beams is suggested. These light fields are promising for photolithography, confocal microscopy, and optical communications. The method is based on the splitting of a supershort arbitrarily polarized Bessel pulse, which propagates in a one-dimentional photonic crystal, into two pulses having the mutually orthogonal polarizations.
