Abstract

We derive explicit analytical relations to describe paraxial light beams that represent a particular case of the hypergeometric (HyG) laser beams [J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 25, 262–270 (2008)]. Among these are modified quadratic Bessel–Gaussian beams, hollow Gaussian optical vortices, modified elegant Laguerre– Gaussian beams, and gamma-HyG beams. Using e-beam microlithography, a binary diffractive optical element capable of producing near-HyG beams is synthesized. Theory and experiment are in sufficient agreement. We experimentally demonstrate the ability to rotate dielectric microparticles using the bright diffraction ring of a HyG beam.
