Abstract

A new setup of interferometers is proposed in which the set of specific optical markers—optical vortices—could be generated. The classical Mach–Zender two-beam interferometer has been modernized using the Wollaston prism. In this setup, the optical vortices could be obtained for a wide range of both beam parameters. The numerical analysis and experiments confirm our theoretical predictions.
