Abstract

A stable interferometric arrangement consisting of a polarizing beam splitter, a reflector, and a right-angle prism is designed to transform helical beams into polarization vortices. The computer-generated holograms are loaded on the liquid crystal spatial light modulator (LC-SLM) in order to generate different helical beams. Then the helical beams are transformed into polarization vortices with different kinds of intensity distribution successfully.
