Abstract

We introduce a new class of (2+1) dimensional circle Pearcey beams (CPBs) with the abruptly autofocusing (AAF) characteristics. Compared with circular Airy beams, CPBs can increase the peak intensity contrast, shorten the focus distance and, especially, eliminate the oscillation after the focal point. Furthermore, we discuss the influence of the optical vortices (including on-axis, off-axis, and vortex pairs) on the light intensity distribution of the CPBs during propagating.
