Abstract

We report on a modified Sagnac interferometer used to sort spin–orbit modes of a paraxial beam. The interferometer works as a parity sorter and can be useful for quantum information protocols. The geometry used benefits from phase stability and allows for independent manipulation of the interfering beams.
