Abstract
We propose a scheme based on a type of continuous-phase encoding grating for the generation of multiple curved Bessel-like beams simultaneously. It is shown that multiple identical curved Bessel-like beams that diverge from a common center can be generated by overlapping a specially designed phase with a continuous-phase grating, and multiple high-order curved Bessel-like beams can be generated when another spiral phase is embedded. As an example, a 5×5 symmetric continuous-phase grating embedded with the special designed phase and a spiral phase is demonstrated based on a spatial light modulator. The experimental results show that 5×5 square arrays of bright- and dark-center curved Bessel-like beams were well generated. The proposed method provides an interesting method for obtaining simultaneously multiple curved Bessel-like beams, which should be of high interest for its promising applications in parallel optical manipulation, optical guiding, laser machining or laser surgery, particle acceleration, etc.
