Abstract
We demonstrated direct surface-emitting of Laguerre–Gaussian beams with wavefront modulated lasers. This integrable phase-modulating surface-emitting lasers has potential to emit arbitrarily configured beam patterns without requiring any optical elements or scanning devices. The fabricated devices are on-chip-sized, making them suitable for integration. We introduce a phase-modulating resonator in a semiconductor laser, which analogically behaves as phaseonly holograms, kinoform, to allow the concurrent realization of lasing and phase modulation. Particularly, this is promising in the use for free-space optical communications due to the fact that coaxial propagation of orbital angular momentum (OAM) properties with different OAM mode states are mutually orthogonal.
