  • Dudley, Angela L; Forbes, A (Optical Society of America, 2012-04)
    In this work we use a phase-only spatial light modulator (SLM) to mimic a ring-slit aperture, containing multiple azimuthally varying phases at different radial positions. The optical Fourier transform of such an aperture ...
  • Li, Y; Dudley, Angela L; Mhlanga, T; Escutia, MJ; Forbes, A (SPIE Proceedings, 2013-08)
    We experimentally generate non-diffracting vector vortex beams by using a Spatial Light Modulator (SLM) and an azimuthal birefringent plate (q-plate). The SLM generates scalar Bessel beams and the q-plate converts them to ...
  • Dudley, Angela L; Lib, Y; Mhlanga, T; Escuti, M; Forbes, A (SPIE Proceedings, 2014-03)
    We demonstrate how to create non-diffracting vector Bessel beams by implementing a spatial light modulator (SLM) to generate scalar Bessel beams which are then converted into vector fields by the use of an azimuthally-varying ...
  • Dudley, Angela L; Li, Y; Mhlanga, T; Escuti, M; Forbes, A (Optical Society of America, 2013-09)
    Nondiffracting vector Bessel beams are of considerable interest due to their nondiffracting nature and unique high-numerical-aperture focusing properties. Here we demonstrate their creation by a simple procedure requiring ...
  • Vasilyeu, R; Dudley, Angela L; Khilo, N; Forbes, A (Optical Society of America, 2009-10)
    An experimental setup to generate a superposition of higher-order Bessel beams by means of a spatial light modulator and ring aperture is presented. The experimentally produced fields are in good agreement with those ...
  • Vasilyeu, R; Dudley, Angela L; Khilo, N; Forbes, A (Optical Society of America, 2009-12)
    The authors report the first experimental generation of the superposition of higher-order Bessel beams, by means of a spatial light modulator (SLM) and a ring slit aperture. They present illuminating a ring slit aperture ...
  • Mafu, M; Dudley, Angela L; Goyal, S; Giovannini, D; McLaren, M; Padgett, MJ; Konrad, T; Petruccione, F; Lutkenhaus, N; Forbes, A (American Physical Society, 2013-09)
    We present an experimental study of higher-dimensional quantum key distribution protocols based on mutually unbiased bases, implemented by means of photons carrying orbital angular momentum. We perform (d + 1) mutually ...
  • Forbes, A; Schulze, C; Flamm, D; Dudley, Angela L; Duparre, M (Optical Society of America, 2013-04)
    We show how laser beam characterization may be done in real-time with digital holograms. We illustrate the power of the techniques by applying them to a variety of laser sources, from fibers to solid-state.
  • Schulze, C; Dudley, Angela L; Brüning, R; Duparré, M; Forbes, A (Optical Society of America, 2014-09)
    We present the measurement of the orbital angular momentum (OAM) density of Bessel beams and superpositions thereof by projection into a Laguerre–Gaussian basis. This projection is performed by an all-optical inner product ...
  • Schulze, C; Dudley, Angela L; Flamm, D; Duparre, M; Forbes, A (IOP Publishing, 2013-07)
    We demonstrate a versatile method for the measurement of the orbital angular momentum (OAM) density of an optical field. By performing a modal decomposition with digital holograms, we reconstruct the full optical field ...
  • Dudley, Angela L; Milione, G; Alfano, R; Forbes, A (CSIR, 2014-07)
    The presentation focuses on how horizontal and vertical components of a field can be extracted via Stokes polarimetry
  • Dudley, Angela L; Litvin, I; Forbes, A (SPIE, 2012-01)
    To measure the Orbital Angular Momentum (OAM) density of superposition fields two steps are needed: generation and measurement. An azimuthally-varying phase (bounded by a ring-slit) placed in the spatial frequency domain ...
  • Milione, G; Dudley, Angela L; Nguyen, TA; Chakraborty, O; Karimi, E; Forbes, A; Alfano, RR (IOP Publishing, 2015-02)
    We experimentally measured the self-healing of the spatially inhomogeneous states of polarization of vector Bessel beams. Radially and azimuthally polarized vector Bessel beams were experimentally generated via a digital ...

  • Dudley, Angela L; Nock, M; Konrad, T; Roux, FS; Forbes, A (Optical Society of America, 2010-10)
    An amplitude damping channel for Laguerre-Gaussian (LG) modes is presented. Experimentally the action of the channel on LG modes is in good agreement with that predicted theoretically.
  • Schulze, C; Flamm, D; Dudley, Angela L; Forbes, A; Duparr'e, M (SPIE Digital library, 2013-02)
    We present a novel technique to measure the orbital angular momentum (OAM) density of light. The technique is based on modal decomposition, enabling the complete reconstruction of optical fields, including the reconstruction ...
  • Litvin, IA; Dudley, Angela L; Forbes, A (Optical Society of America, 2011-08)
    The authors study theoretically the orbital angular momentum (OAM) density in arbitrary scalar optical fields, and outline a simple approach using only a spatial light modulator to measure this density. They demonstrate ...
  • Dudley, Angela L; Rop, R; Litvin, IA; Lopez-Mariscal, C; Roux, FS; Forbes, A (SPIE, 2012-08)
    We experimentally generated superpositions of higher-order Bessel beams that possess no global orbital angular momentum (OAM), yet exhibit an angular rotation in their intensity profile as the field propagates. The digital ...
  • Dudley, Angela L; Litvin, IA; Forbes, A (Optical Society of America, 2012-03)
    In this work we derive expressions for the orbital angular momentum (OAM) density of light, for both symmetric and nonsymmetric optical fields, that allow a direct comparison between theory and experiment. We present a ...
  • Dudley, Angela L; Schulze, C; Litvin, I; Duparré, M; Forbes, A (SPIE Proceedings, 2013-08)
    Although many techniques are efficient at measuring optical orbital angular momentum (OAM), they do not allow one to obtain a quantitative measurement for the OAM density across an optical field and instead only measure ...
