GENERATION OF VERSATILE VORTEX LINEAR LIGHT BULLETS

Abstract
We demonstrate a versatile vortex linear light bullet as a three-dimensional vortex AiryBessel wave packet for the first time. It combines a temporal Airy pulse with a higher order
vortex Bessel beam in spatial domain. Its non-varying feature in linear propagation is
verified by 3D measurement. Advancing from earlier linear light bullets, this wave packet is
not critically limited to specific linear materials. We believe that the versatile vortex linear
light bullet can lead to many fascinating possibilities in various applications such as optical
tweezing and material modification. Moreover, the controlled collisions between optical
vortices in time domain are also studied.
