Angular momentum of light revisited: Spin-orbit interactions in free space

Bliokh, Konstantin; Alonso, Miguel A; Ostrovskaya, Elena


We give an exact self-consistent operator description of the spin and orbital angular momenta, position, and spin-orbit interactions of nonparaxial light in free space. We apply the general theory to symmetric and asymmetric Bessel beams exhibiting spin-
