We report free-space optical communications exploiting fractional orbital angular momentum (OAM) multiplexing. Using OFDM-QPSK/16QAM signals over fractional OAM beams with varied channel spacing, fractional OAM communications are demonstrated in the experiment even with a small OAM channel spacing of 0.6.
