Transmission of Elegant Laguerre-Gaussian beams at a dielectric interface - numerical simulations

Behaviour of Laguerre-Gaussian beams impinged at a dielectric interface under distinct angles is discussed. For different incident angles the beams interact with the interface differently. Two ranges of incident angles, specified by a position of a spectral cone of beam field and related to a cross-polarization effect, are analyzed. Boundary between these two ranges is defined. Cases of critical incidence and total internal reflection are also discussed. Paraxial beams near the lower paraxial limit are considered. Theoretical predictions are confirmed by numerical simulations.

Keywords: oblique incidence; transmission; cross-polarization; optical vortices; paraxial beams; Elegant Laguerre-Gaussian beams
