Recently, a new class of nondiffracting beams has been demonstrated theoretically. Namely, Parabolic nondiffracting optical wavefields constitute the last member of the family of fundamental nondiffracting wavefields. Additionally, the existence of a new class of parabolic traveling waves associated to these wavefields has been demonstrated along the same lines. We have succeeded in demonstrating experimentally the fundamental odd and even parabolic wavefields in the laboratory. In this work, we present and discuss the experimental generation of higher-order parabolic nondiffracting wavefields. Because these fields show a complex structure, their generation relies in the successful construction of the field.
