Abstract

We propose a new method for realizing high-spatial-resolution detection of singularity points in optical vortex beams. The method uses a Shack–Hartmann wavefront sensor (SHWS) to record a Hartmanngram. A map of evaluation values related to phase slope is then calculated from the Hartmanngram. The position of an optical vortex is determined by comparing the map with reference maps that are calculated from numerically created spiral phases having various positions. Optical experiments were carried out to verify the method. We displayed various spiral phase distribution patterns on a phase-only spatial light modulator and measured the resulting singularity point using the proposed method. The results showed good linearity in detecting the position of singularity points. The RMS error of the measured position of the singularity point was approximately 0.056, in units normalized to the lens size of the lenslet array used in the SHWS.

Concept of circulation calculation. Sx and Sy represents phase slopes in x-axis (horizontal) and y-axis (vertical) directions, and i, j denotes the lenslet index. The solid circles are the centers of lenslets, the open circles indicate crosspoints of neighboring 2 × 2 lenslets. The dashed line indicates a contour connecting the centers of the four neighboring lenslets. The symbol “” denotes the position of phase singularity point.
