Abstract

Transformation of Bessel beams by biaxial and uniaxial crystals is investigated experimentally and theoretically. Experimental observations show beam symmetry changing and formation of complex intensity patterns, depending on the orientation of the crystal. These patterns can appear as a regular system of peak intensities. Results of numerical calculations support the experimental findings.
