Generating Switchable and Reconfigurable Optical Vortices via Photopatterning of Liquid Crystals

Authors


Abstract

Liquid-crystal fork gratings are demonstrated through photopatterning realized on a DMD-based microlithography system. This supplies a new strategy for generating fast switchable, reconfigurable, wavelength-tolerant and polarization-insensitive optical vortices. The technique has great potential in broad fields such as OAM-based quantum computations, optical communications, and micromanipulation.
