Paper Abstract

We analyze the effect of atmospheric turbulence on the propagation of multiplexed Laguerre Gaussian modes. We present a method to multiplex Laguerre Gaussian modes using digital holograms and decompose the resulting field after encountering a laboratory simulated atmospheric turbulence. The proposed technique makes use of a single spatial light modulator for the generation of superimposed beam and a second spatial light modulator and a CCD camera for the modal decomposition. The obtained results demonstrate how sensitive the Laguerre Gaussian beams are to atmospheric distortions.
