Twisted Photons by Juan P. Torres (Editor), Lluis Torner (Editor)



Publisher: Wiley-VCH; 1 edition (March 14, 2011)

This book deals with applications in several areas of science and technology that make use of light which carries orbital angular momentum. In most practical scenarios, the angular momentum can be decomposed into two independent contributions: the spin angular momentum and the orbital angular momentum. The orbital contribution affords a fundamentally new degree of freedom, with fascinating and wide-spread applications. Unlike spin angular momentum, which is associated with the polarization of light, the orbital angular momentum arises as a consequence of the spatial distribution of the intensity and phase of an optical field, even down to the single photon limit. Researchers have begun to appreciate its implications for our understanding of the ways in which light and matter can interact, and its practical potential in different areas of science and technology.



Review "Overall, this volume provides a convenient entry into a field which has achieved much but which also has considerable scope for further growth. If one wishes to play a role in the future of orbital angular momentum then this is an excellent place to start." (Contemporary Physics Book Reviews, 25 August 2011)
