A vortex Raman laser pumped by the second-order optical vortex mode was demonstrated. The first- and the second- Stokes waves that lased at the first-order optical vortex mode were generated. Considering the spatial intensity overlap between the pump and the first-Stokes beam, and between the first- and second-Stokes beams, the generation of a topological charge of 1 in the Stokes fields could be theoretically predicted.
Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
