Abstract

Polarization of paraxial Airy beam solutions of Maxwell’s equations and its evolution with propagation have been studied. We experimentally demonstrate the existence of the cross-polarization component of the Airy beam, typical of nonplanar phase fronts, and study its evolution with propagation.
