Paper Abstract

A technique for generation of optical vortex beams with a variable orbital angular momentum on the basis of a fiber laser array is suggested. The technique is based on controlling the radiation phase of individual subapertures of the array. Requirements for parameters of a device for vortex beam generation are determined (the number and size of subapertures and their arrangement). The propagation dynamics of a vortex beam synthesized is compared with that of a continuous vortex beam in free space and in a turbulent atmosphere. Spectral properties of a beam synthesized, which is represented as a superposition of different azimuth modes, are determined during its free-space propagation. It is shown that energy and statistical parameters coincide for synthesized and continuous vortex beams when propagating through a turbulent medium.
