Paper Abstract

It is known that Laguerre-Gauss beams with indices n equals 0 and nonzero m have a single phase singularity of order m and the intensity shaped as a circumference. In this work a generalization of these beams is proposed, namely, for any closed curve on the plane there exists a family of singular beams depending on a pair of integer-valued parameters, any member of which is structurally stable under propagation and focusing. In particular, when the curve is a circumference Laguerre-Gauss modes and parameters n,m are obtained.
