Spatially resolved spectroscopy of vortex beams is able to test the state of optical systems, to decode specific information or to sensitively indicate light-matter interactions. Spectral maps of ultrashort vortex pulses generated by hybrid diffractive-reflective spiral phase plates were studied experimentally and theoretically. Local spectral maps were detected by high-resolution scanning with a fiber-coupled spectrometer. Distributions of spectral centers of gravity and second moments were analyzed for femtosecond pulses. Gouy rotation of characteristic spectral features in the proximity of a phase singularity as a function of propagation distance was indicated in the spectral domain. Angular rotation was found to be modulated by weak oscillations. Analysis of spectral meta-moments indicates a fast switching and twisting behavior of spatial chirp.
