Abstract
A method of understanding the behavior of multiple coaxial Bessel beams is presented. An attempt to develop a way to modify the longitudinal behavior of Bessel beams is discussed by analogy to a multiple plane wave interference pattern. It is shown, both with theory and numerical simulation, that the summation of several coherent Bessel beams of differing convergence will alter the performance of the propagating beam in a predicable manner.
