Paper Abstract

It is shown that polarization singularities of vector field are connected with the presence or absence of the angular momentum of electromagnetic field. Namely, in the vicinity of C-point the orbital angular momentum is observed, while the spin momentum is indefinite (vanishes) on the s-contour.
