For centuries, singularities in wave fields have been a mainstay of interest in multiple areas of physics, ranging from plasma physics, fluid dynamics and atmospheric physics to optics and photonics . In optics, energy and momentum flow around singularities in the interference field can twist to form vortices, which carry angular momentum [2–4]. Singular Optics is the branch of physics that encompasses studies of structured light with localized and extended singularities, such as optical...[Show more]
