Dynamics of optical spin-orbit coupling in uniaxial crystals

Brasselet, Etienne; Izdebskaya, Yana; Shvedov, Vladlen; Desyatnikov, Anton S.; Krolikowski, Wieslaw; Kivshar, Yuri


We study theoretically and verify experimentally the detailed dynamics of spin-to-orbital angular momentum conversion for a circularly polarized Gaussian beam propagating along the optical axis of a uniaxial crystal. We extend the results to the case of white-light beams when each of the spectral components undergoes its own wavelength-dependent angular momentum conversion process.
