Abstract
The aim of the given report is experimental and theoretical research of the diffraction of a Gaussian beam by the optical wedges system. It is shown that this system is able to form high-order optical vortices. The effectiveness of system is about 90%. It was shown, that each wedge changes a charge of phase singularity as a result of edge diffraction. The value topological charge of the optical vortex formed after system is defined by the number of wedges in the system. Changing mutual orientation corners of wedges we can select required conditions of the vortex core. It was revealed that the optical vortex appears structurally steady if the comer of mutual orientation of wedges equals α = πn (where n-number of wedges).
