We introduce a generalized approach to generate an elementary nondiffracting beam, whose transverse intensity is distributed corresponding to a two-dimensional kagome structure. Furthermore, we present an effective experimental implementation via a computer controlled phase controlling spatial light modulator in combination with a specific Fourier filter system. Intensity and phase analysis of the kagome lattice beam accounts for an experimental wave field implementation. Altogether, the examined wave field may be a fundament for the fabrication of large two-dimensional photonic crystals or photonic lattices in kagome symmetry using miscellaneous holographic matter structuring techniques.
