In this paper, a simple, analytical, and very efficient method capable of providing control of an optical beam's intensity over an arbitrary curvilinear (planar) trajectory is developed. The same method also provides the possibility of managing branchings of the optical beam. The results presented here can have valuable applications in fields like optical tweezers, optical lithography, atom optical guiding, and structured light. (C) 2021 Optical Society of America (AU)
