Paper Abstract

In this paper, we proposed a new method to generate OAM beams based on modal interference principle in two mode fiber. Micro-waveguides were specially designed to excite and combine the high order mode for realizing the two-mode interference in the two-mode fiber. Advanced femtosecond laser processing technology was employed to inscribed the micro-waveguides at the two ends of the two-mode fiber. After optimizing the waveguide size, an in-line interferometer was successfully realized with a low insertion loss of 1.3 dB and a contrast of higher than 22 dB. Finally, the experimental results demonstrated that the left- and right-handed circularly polarized fundamental mode was successfully converted into the ±1-order OAM beams.
