Abstract

The closed-form propagation expressions of an edge dislocation nested in a general elliptical Gaussian beam through aligned and misaligned paraxial optical A B C D systems are derived and used to study the dynamic evolution behavior of the edge dislocation propagating in free space and through a misaligned lens. It is shown that the noncanonical vortex and dynamic inversion of the topological charge, as well as a new edge dislocation may appear under certain conditions. The results are illustrated analytically and numerically.
