Abstract

Wavefront characterization for orbital angular momentum (OAM) modes is demonstrated using quadrature phase-shift interference. The phase fronts and intensity profiles of OAM(-2), OAM(-4), OAM(-6), and OAM(-8) are measured. Wavefront correlations between the experimental results and the pure Laguerre-Gaussian modes are calculated to evaluate the measurement. The measured results are in reasonable agreement with the anticipated results based on simulations.
