Abstract

We report the observation of Bessel-like beams from periodic patterns induced on viscoelastic polymer surfaces by electric field. The patterns resembling a microaxicon array originate from electrohydrodynamic instabilities in polymer films, where the feature dimensions can be easily controlled. The output beam characteristics from these patterns revealed characteristic traits of Bessel beams.
