Bessel-Gaussian (BG) modes possess unique characteristics that have been exploited in the classical world and which may also o er advantages over other modes in the quantum regime. We use the reconstruction property of BG modes to recover the degree of entanglement of our quantum state after encountering an obstruction. For BG modes, there exists a minimum distance behind an obstruction before reconstruction of the mode occurs. By moving the obstruction along the path of propagation of the entangled photon pairs, we quantitatively show a increase in the degree of entanglement as the obstruction moved beyond that minimum distance.
