Non-diffracting optical beams and their structured versions have been extensively studied, theoretically and experimentally, over the last two decades, rendering important applications in fields such as imaging, microscopy, remote sensing, optical manipulation, free space optics, etc. In this paper, we theoretically construct arrays of non-coaxial structured non-diffracting beams by using the so-called frozen wave method. We also develop techniques based on polarization allocations and apodizations to mitigate undesirable interferences among neighboring beams. Our results can find interesting applications in all fields that benefit from the use of non-diffracting beams. (C) 2020 Optical Society of America (AU)
