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.
