A ring-shaped focus, such as a focused vortex beam, has played an important role in microfabrication and optical tweezers. The shape and diameter of the ring-shaped focus can be easily adjusted by the topological charge of the vortex. However, the flow energy is also related to the topological charge, making the individual control of diameter and flow energy of the vortex beam impossible. Meanwhile, the shape of the focus of the vortex beam remains in the hollow ring. Expanding the shape of focus of structural light broadens the applications of the vortex beam in the field of microfabrication. Here, we proposed a ring-shaped focus with controllable gaps by multiplexing the vortex beam and annular beam. The multiplexed beam has several advantages, such as the diameter and flow energy of the focal point can be individually controlled and are not affected by the zero-order beam, and the gap size and position are controllable.

High-accuracy mode recognition method in orbital angular momentum optical communication system

Vortex optical communication has been a hot research field in recent years. A key step is mode recognition in the orbital angular momentum (OAM) free-space optical (FSO) communication system. In this article, we propose an OAM mode recognition method based on image recognition technology, which uses the interferogram between the vortex beam and the Gaussian beam to identify the OAM mode. In order to resist the influence of atmospheric turbulence on the recognition accuracy, we added a Gaussian smoothing filter into the recognition process. Moreover, we used random phase screens to generate interferogram sets at distances of 1 km and 2 km. The verification result shows that the proposed scheme produces high identification accuracy for the distorted optical field. The average accuracy can reach 100% and 87.78% under the conditions of medium- and strong-turbulence levels, respectively. It is anticipated that these results might be helpful for improving the reliability of the OAM-FSO communication system in the future.

Dark state atoms trapping in a magic-wavelength optical lattice near the nanofiber surface
Dianqiang Su, Xiateng Qin, Yuan Jiang, Kaidi Jin, Zhonghua Ji, Yanting Zhao, Liantuan Xiao, and Suotang Jia
We report the experimental realization of dark state atoms trapping in a nanofiber optical lattice. By applying the magic-wavelength trapping potentials of cesium atoms, the AC Stark shifts are strongly suppressed. The dark magneto-optical trap efficiently transfers the cold atoms from bright (6S1/2, F = 4) into dark state (6S1/2, F = 3) for hyperfine energy levels of cesium atoms. The observed transfer efficiency is as high as 98% via saturation measurement. The trapping lifetime of dark state atoms trapped by a nanofiber optical lattice is also investigated, which is the key element for realizing optical storage. This work contributes to the manipulation of atomic electric dipole spin waves and quantum information storage for fiber networks.

Multi-channel pseudo-random coding single-photon ranging and imaging
Di Wu, Lei Yang, Xiuliang Chen, Zhaohui Li, and Guang Wu
We demonstrate a multi-channel pseudo-random coding single-photon ranging system. A pseudo-random multiplexing technique is proposed, which realizes multi-channel pseudo-random ranging only by using one single-photon detector and processing circuit. Compared with the time division multiplexing technique, it will not reduce the maximum unambiguous range while increasing the number of the ranging channel. Eight-channel pseudo-random coding single-photon ranging was realized with the ranging accuracy better than 2 cm. Moreover, photon counting imaging was realized through scanning the laser beams of the eight-channel pseudo-random ranging system. There is no crosstalk between channels, which is suitable for multi-beam long-distance single-photon Lidar.
