Abstract:
An increasing attention has been concentrated on nondiffracting Bessel beams, due to their novel properties and prospective applications. In order to study their properties entirely, including the transverse modes, the polarization states and the flow of energy, vector analyses should be done. In this paper, based on auxiliary functions of Hertzian vector potential, nondiffracting Bessel beams are analyzed. The useful results are obtained and presented in this paper.
