Abstract

We introduce a novel and simple modulation technique to tailor optical beams with a customized amount of orbital angular momentum (OAM). The technique is based on the modulation of the angular spectrum of a seed beam, which allows us to specify in an independent manner the value of OAM and the shape of the resulting beam transverse intensity. We experimentally demonstrate our method by arbitrarily shaping the radial and angular intensity distributions of Bessel and Laguerre-Gauss beams, while their OAM value remains constant. Our experimental results agree with the numerical and theoretical predictions.

Figures (6)

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1. Intuitive interpretation of the modulation process. The phase modulation $\Omega$ in Eq. (3) is equivalent to the superposition of a spiral phase with a wavefront $\Theta$. The spiral phase determines the value of $J_{z}$ whereas $\Theta$ shapes the intensity of the resulting beam $U$, which results from the diffraction of $\Omega$ with the angular spectrum of the seed beam.

Laser: He-Ne laser with $\lambda =632.8$ nm, HWP: half-wave plate, SF: spatial filter, LP: linear polarizer, SLM: spatial light modulator, lenses with focal lengths $f_{1}=15$ cm and $f_{2}=5$ cm, CCD: camera.

LGB: Laguerre-Gauss type beam generated with an LG seed [Eq. (7)]. BB: Nondiffracting type beam with a zeroth-order Bessel seed. (a) Simulation generated with $U=F^{-1}[\mathcal {A}\tilde {U}_{0}]$, and (b) experimental results. The numerical value is calculated with Eq.
