Abstract

A generalization of type 3 ultrashort pulses (also known as pulse beams or isodiffracting pulses) is introduced. The Bessel beam form of this generalized beam consists of pulses that propagate in free space, without spreading, with a velocity that can be less than that of light. A model spectral distribution that is zero outside a finite range is investigated.
