Paper Abstract

Universal method, permitting to form multi-ring light beams with a required quantity of rings from the circularly polarized Gaussian light beam, is proposed. This method permits to increase or decrease by 1 the order of an input beam wavefront screw dislocation, if beam has it. The method was realized by means of the optical scheme containing a biaxial crystal. Using biaxial KTP and (alpha) -HIO3 (iodic acid) crystals Bessel and multi-ring light beams with the first and the second order dislocations are obtained experimentally. The second harmonic generation by mono-, two- and four-ring light beams possessing WFSD1 in a nonlinear KTP crystal is studied experimentally.
