Abstract
Vortex beams with integral and fractional topological charges are generated by an experimental setup with one phase-only liquid crystal spatial light modulator which efficiently modulates the phase retardation distributions of input beam. The intensity distributions and double-slit interference of vortex beams with integral and fractional topological charges are investigated in detail. Tilt appears in double-slit interference fringes of vortex beams. The fringe tilt amounts in the intermediate region are proportional to the topological charge l of vortex beams. The double-slit interference method can be utilized to determine the topological charge of vortex beams.
