Abstract

We present simple methods to produce optical vortices on the axis of beam propagation with nonspiral phase plates. We show that a phase plate that provides linear phase retardation on one half of a laser beam produces optical vortices, which is demonstrated experimentally by use of a thickness-varying glass platelet. We also demonstrate and explain that mixed dislocations of a bent edge dislocation transform into a pair of vortices with opposing topological charges.
