Since the Bessel beam was proposed as an exact solution of propagation-invariant mode to the Helmholtz equation by Durnin in 1987, it has attracted a great deal of research interests. Due to its properties of non-diffraction and self-healing, the Bessel beam has been widely used in the fields of free-space optical interconnects and communications, optical capture and particle manipulation, optical micro-nano machining, optical microscopic imaging, and femtosecond laser processing. Recently, the propagation and manipulation of Bessel beams have become an issue of fundamental importance.

Making use of acousto-optic Bragg diffraction effect, Acousto-optic modulators (AOMs) are versatile active optical devices that can e?iciently change both the frequency and the propagating direction of an optical field in real time, AOMs are widely used in optics and laser technology. In the experiments related with quantum optics and quantum information technology, AOMs have been used in various applications, including the controlling of probe light in quantum memory, observation the beating signal from single photons, generation of a phase locking reference in squeezed vacuum state generation experiment and in photon subtraction based Non-Gaussian state generation experiment.

Ultrashort ultra-intense lasers (within duration in femtosecond scale) serve for not only the exploration of scientific unknowns related to extreme states of matter, but also the establishment of scientific facilities to support strategic high-tech such as inertial confinement fusion. However, the wavelength range of ultrashort ultra-intense lasers is restricted to the near-infrared (typically 800 nm and 1053 nm) by the available laser media. Nonlinear frequency conversion based on nonlinear optical crystals has been widely used in order to generate laser frequencies that are not available by direct laser action. The efficiency of nonlinear frequency conversion depends on the fulfillment of phase-matching condition.

Chirality is a kind of symmetrical structure that exists in nature. A substance has chirality if its mirror image cannot overlap with itself through basic rotations and translations. It is closely related to the phenomenon of life: more than 60% of drugs and 25% of pesticides are chiral compounds. Chiral characteristics significantly affect the function of biochemical substances, chiral isomers have the same chemical composition but may have completely different physical and chemical properties and biological activities, and even a chiral molecule has a therapeutic effect on diseases, while its isomers are toxic. Therefore, accurate and efficient detection of biochemical substances, especially the identification and quantitative analysis of chiral biochemical substances, has practical application needs and crucial scientific significance.
