Abstract

Special beams, including the Airy beam and the vortex-embedded Airy beam, draw much attention due to their unique features and promising applications. Therefore, it is necessary to devise a straightforward method for measuring these peculiar features of the beams with ease. Hence we present the astigmatic transformation of Airy and Airy-vortex beam. The "acceleration" coefficient of the Airy beam is directly determined from a single image by fitting the astigmatically transformed beam to an analytic expression. In addition, the orbital angular momentum of optical vortex in Airy-vortex beam is measured directly using a single image.
