Divergence of an orbital-angular-momentum-carrying beam upon propagation


There is recent interest in the use of light beams carrying orbital angularmomentum (OAM) for creatingmultiple channels within free-space optical communication systems.One crucial issue is that, for a given beam size at the transmitter, the beamdivergence angle increases with increasingOAM.Therefore the larger the value ofOAM, the larger the aperture… (More)
