Type: Oral Presentation
Session: Photonics
Track: Track C - Photonics

In this non-specialist talk I will outline how to make light accelerate as it propagates. Using digital holograms to create and propagate structured light fields, I will illustrate linear acceleration with Airy beams and angular acceleration with vortex beams.
