Abstract
We present the experimental and numerical study of the transverse profile for a beam obtained by the screen-edge diffraction of optical-vortex (OV) Kummer beams with topological charges 1, 2 and 3, generated with the help of a “fork” hologram. The main results concern the behavior of the secondary OVs formed in the diffracted beam due to splitting of the incident multicharged OV into a set of single-charged ones. When the screen edge moves across the incident beam, OVs in every cross section of the diffracted beam describe complicated spiral-like trajectories, which distinctly manifests the screw-like nature and the energy circulation in the OV beam. At certain conditions, positions of the separate OVs as well as their mutual configuration (singular skeleton of the diffracted beam) shows high sensitivity to the screen edge dislocation with respect to the incident beam axis. This can be used for remote measurements of small displacements and deformations.
