Abstract
It is experimentally and theoretically shown that as a result of spin-orbital interaction in stable CV and unstable IV vortices of a step low-mode fiber there appears topological birefringence. This type of birefringence depends not only on the polarization basis determined by a vortex helicity (sigma) 2, but also on the topological charge (iota) . In this presentation the Magnus effect and Rytov-Vladimirsky effect are different aspects of experimental manifestations of topological birefringence of waveguide vortices.
