Abstract

What we believe to be a new arrangement of an optical vortex interferometer (OVI) is presented. In the proposed configuration the optical vortex lattice is generated in a one-wave setup by use of birefringent elements—Wollaston compensators. The obtained vortex lattice is regular and stable, which is necessary for predicted applications. The new OVI configuration allows the measurement of waves and optical media properties.
