Paper Abstract

We examine novel features that might emerge from the interaction of Laguerre-Gaussian beams with liquid crystals. We study the response of nematic liquid crystal media to the throughput of twisted laser light. Specific attention is focused on the spatial evolution of the director orientation angle.
