Paper Abstract

In the last years optical vortices and other phase singularities [1] have received considerable interest in the scientific community [2]. Thereby a new chapter on features of coherent optical waves has been written. The intention of this paper is to make these valuable new phenomena available in the formation of teachers and.to introduce teachers to the fascinating ideas of the world of singularities. To that purpose we present a short introduction to optical vortices which should be understandable for readers (teachers) with little pre-knowledge and describe a demonstration experiment for optical vortices which can be performed with the means available at high schools.
