Abstract

A compact and broad wavelength range tunable orbital angular momentum (OAM) generator was experimentally demonstrated by cascading two helical photonic crystal fibers (HPCFs) with opposite helicity, i.e., clockwise-twisted $+$ anticlockwise-twisted HPCF. Such an OAM generator exhibited a length of approximately 9 mm and generated a high-quality OAM mode with a wavelength range of 35 nm. Moreover, the wavelength range is expected to be tuned from 17.9–51.3 nm by applying mechanical torsion.
