NON-SPECIALIST LECTURE: Accelerating light
Presented by Prof. Andrew FORBES on 1 Jul 2015 from 11:30 to 12:10
Type: Oral Presentation
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.
