Abstract

We first demonstrate the accelerating terahertz (THz) Airy beam with a 0.3-THz continuous wave. Two diffractive elements are designed and 3D-printed to form the generation system, which cannot only imprint the desired complex phase pattern but also perform the required Fourier transform (FT). We both numerically and experimentally demonstrate the propagation dynamics of the accelerating THz Airy beam and investigate its self-healing property during propagation in the free space. Our observations are in good agreement with the numerical simulations. Such an accelerating THz Airy beam could be able to develop novel THz imaging systems and robust THz communication links.
