Paper Abstract

We presented the irradiation of optical vortex to ultraviolet (UV) curing resin structures a twisted polymer fiber. A continuous-wave ultraviolet optical vortex, focused at a glass cell containing the cure resin, allowed us to shape a twisted polymeric fiber with a diameter of a few micrometer and a length of ~160 μm with an exposure time of < 1 second. Twisted direction of the fiber was also controlled by inverting the handedness of the optical vortex.
