The Self-healing of Distorted Bessel Beams
An optical beam is said to be self-healing when, distorted by an obstacle, the beam corrects itself upon propagation. A Bessel beam is known for its self-healing property. A Bessel beam is a non-diffracting light beam whose amplitude is described by a Bessel function. To demonstrate the self-healing of the Bessel beam, the beam is distorted and beam profiles are measured as the distorted beam propagates.
