Vortex beam characterization in terms of Hypergeometric-Gaussian modes

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Q-plates are commonly used for uncomplicated generation of polarization controlled vortex beams. Here we show experimentally that the output is not a pure vortex but rather a Hypergeometric-Gaussian mode. Results are in good agreement with theory.
