Abstract

We show what is believed to be the first coherent white-light optical vortices generated from supercontinuum that have the azimuthally varying phase structure consistent with a monochromatic Laguerre–Gaussian beam. Two methods of Laguerre–Gaussian supercontinuum generation are discussed and contrasted. We use a computer-generated hologram to convert a Gaussian white-light supercontinuum source into Laguerre–Gaussian supercontinuum.
