Abstract

The properties of the Finite Olver-Gaussian beams propagating through an uniaxial crystal orthogonal to the optical axis are studied. An analytical expression is developed, and some numerical simulations are performed to investigate the effects of some parameters on intensity distribution and profile of this beams family at the out-put plane of the uniaxial crystal. The results show that the beam exiting the optical system depends on the ratio of the extraordinary refractive index to the ordinary refractive index. Upon propagation in the uniaxial crystal, the Finite Olver-Gaussian beam in two transversal directions accelerates, while the acceleration in the transversal direction orthogonal to the optical axis is far slower than that in the transversal direction along the optical axis.
