Paper Abstract

We propose theoretically and demonstrate experimentally a method for generation of beams of light possessing large angular momenta. The method utilizes cylindrical optical waveguides as well as whispering gallery mode resonators that efficiently transform a plane electromagnetic wave into truncated Bessel beams. Generation of the high order beams with well defined angular momenta is demonstrated.
