Abstract

We analyze numerically the dynamics of optical patterns in a photorefractive single feedback system where a vortex beam is used as the input beam. Depending on the topological charge of the vortex and on the nonlinear photorefractive coupling strength, we observe different pattern geometries with a rotating dynamics.
