Twisted light has recently been recognised to provide added degrees of freedom for encoding information in optical quantum communication with light pulses. Here we propose and discuss plasmonic nanoantennas for twisted light allowing through plasmonic bright and dark modes to convert the information about the orbital angular momentum embedded in twisted light into spectral information. We also discuss orbital angular momentum dichroism in the interaction of twisted light with plasmonic nanostructures.
Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
