Bessel beams are non-diffracting light structures, which maintain their spatial features after meters of propagation and are realized with simple optical elements such as axicon lenses, spatial filters, and lasers. In this paper, we demonstrate a method for generating non diffractive Bessel-like beams through a heavily scattering system, exploiting wavefronts shaped by a spatial light modulator. With the proposed method starting from amorphous speckle patterns, it is possible to produce at user defined positions configurable and non-diffracting light distributions which can improve depth-of-field in speckled illumination microscopy.
