Conical waves producing longitudinal power flows

  • I. A. Kolmakov


A conical electromagnetic wave converging to its axis is studied theoretically. It is demonstrated that the wave produces an intense self-accelerating flow of energy (momentum). Conical waves may find various applications such as in the acceleration of particles, the generation of high-power pencil beams, the transformation of simultaneously written spatial data into a time waveform, the measurement of flow rate, etc. It is noted that conical waves could set the stage for the manifestation of unknown properties of matter.
