Light beams with very high orbital angular momentum

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


It has been shown that a Laguerre-Gaussian laser bearn possesses orbital angular momentum in per photon associated with the azimuthal phase dependence of the electromagnetic field, exp(ilϕ), in addition to spin angular momentum arising from polarization.1
