The existence of twisted light may be inferred from modern quantum concepts and experimental data. These waves possess energy, impulse and angular momentum. However, the Maxwell’s four-dimensional theory of electromagnetism does not imply the existence of waves with these properties. This article develops a model generalizing the theory of electromagnetism in such a way that it would be possible to obtain equations of twisted electromagnetic waves. Generalization is implemented by introduction… 

On the invariance in the inhomogeneous Lorentz group SO(1,3) in the context of optical vortex description

Recent studies of optical vortexes have elicited the need for a new kind of transformations, comprising a variety of Lorentz transformations that would embody not only translational but rotational

The gravitational redshift of a optical vortex being different from that of an gravitational redshift plane of an electromagnetic wave

A hypothesis put forward in late 20th century and subsequently substantiated experimentally posited the existence of optical vortices (twisted light). An optical vortex is an electromagnetic wave

Determination of the Hubble Constant from the Cosmic Microwave Background with Allowance for the Photon Angular Momentum

At present it has become obvious that there is a significant contradiction between the results obtained by the methods of measuring the current rate of expansion of the Universe using the cosmic

In this first paper of a series on alternative cosmological models we present an extended version of a cosmological model in Weyl–Cartan spacetime. The new model can be viewed as a generalization of

On an Interpretation of Non-Riemannian Gravitation

Motivated by the invariance of actions under gauge symmetries the definitions of standard clocks in theories of gravitation are discussed. We argue that standard Einsteinian clocks can be defined in

Laser-induced rotation and cooling of a trapped microgyroscope in vacuum

This work demonstrates simultaneous optical trapping and rotation of a birefringent microparticle in vacuum using a circularly polarized trapping laser beam—a microgyroscope and attributes this cooling to the interaction between the gyroscopic directional stabilization and the optical trapping field.

Gravitational interaction in seven-dimensional space-time

For an unambiguous description of the position of a body in space, it is necessary to specify its three spatial coordinates, the time instant, and three coordinates which fix the body orientation in

Direct observation of transfer of angular momentum to absorptive particles from a laser beam with a phase singularity.

Black or reflective particles can be trapped in the dark central minimum of a doughnut laser beam produced using a high efficiency computer generated hologram to carry angular momentum transferred from the central phase singularity beam.

It is described how the electrons can exhibit such orbital motion in free space in the absence of any confining potential or external field, and how these beams can be applied to improved electron microscopy of magnetic and biological specimens.
