Abstract

We propose a protocol for generating high-quality, partially coherent (quasi-)Bessel beam arrays with controllable beam order and spatial distributions. Our protocol involves, apart from beam intensity shaping, coherence engineering of recently introduced optical coherence lattices. Our theoretical results are validated with the experimental realization of partially coherent Bessel beam arrays. The novel beam arrays are anticipated to be useful for multi-particle trapping and micromanipulation, optical metrology and microscopy, as well as for 3D imaging.
