Wave front transformation of optical vortices with multiwave interactions in resonant media

  • O. G. RomanovEmail author
  • A. L. Tolstik

The transformation of singular light beams is analyzed theoretically for multiwave interactions on amplitude and phase dynamic holograms in media with a resonant nonlinearity. The possibility of multiplying topological charge using different diffraction orders is demonstrated and optimal conditions for parametric energy exchange are determined which ensure retention of the structure of the wave front of optical vortices.
