Abstract

We investigate the transfer of orbital angular momentum (OAM) in a type-II optical parametric oscillator (OPO). We produce different kinds of transverse modes on the downconverted beams by pumping the OPO with a first-order Laguerre–Gaussian beam well above threshold. Different operation regimes are attained showing a rich variety of transverse modes bearing OAM.
