Free-space information transfer using light beams carrying orbital angular momentum.

The transfer of information encoded as orbital angular momentum states of a light beam is demonstrated, which is resistant to eavesdropping and gives an experimental insight into the effects of aperturing and misalignment of the beam on the OAM measurement and demonstrates the uncertainty relationship for OAM.

Terabit free-space data transmission employing orbital angular momentum multiplexing

Researchers demonstrate the ability to multiplex and transfer data between twisted beams of light with different amounts of orbital angular momentum — a development that provides new opportunities

This work outlines the principle mathematically and demonstrates it experimentally using a supercontinuum source to shape rotating white-light Bessel beams carrying orbital angular momentum.

Pixelated phase computer holograms for the accurate encoding of scalar complex fields.

Two holograms of this class of phase computer-generated holograms for the encoding of arbitrary scalar complex fields are described that allow high quality reconstruction of the encoded field even if they are implemented with a low-resolution pixelated phase modulator.

Space-division multiplexing in optical fibres

This Review summarizes the simultaneous transmission of several independent spatial channels of light along optical fibres to expand the data-carrying capacity of optical communications. Recent

Direction-sensitive transverse velocity measurement by phase-modulated structured light beams.

A novel method that uses dynamic control of the phase in the transverse plane of the structured light beam so that the direction of the particles' movement can be deduced and can be used with other types of motion.

Performance metrics and design considerations for a free-space optical orbital-angular-momentum–multiplexed communication link

The capacity of free-space optical (FSO) communication links could potentially be increased by the simultaneous transmission of multiple orbital angular momentum (OAM) beams. For such an OAM
