Momentum transfer in a standing optical vortex

Shvedov, Vladlen; Desyatnikov, Anton S; Izdebskaya, Yana; Rode, Andrei V; Kivshar, Yuri; Krolikowski, Wieslaw


Singular optical beams have been studied for many years after the pioneering work where the wave function of the laser radiation is presented as a steady-state solution of the wave equation for a harmonic oscillator. A major step in understanding the nature of singular beams has been made by introducing the concept of the angular momentum of light and analyzing local energy transfer in a vortex beam. It is now well accepted that the orbital angular momentum of light is an intrinsic feature of...[Show more]
