Abstract

We theoretically show that a family of optical beams with vortex-lattice structures can be reliably generated by tilting the focal lens to introduce the relative phases between the interfering beams. We also experimentally generate the quasicrystal beams to confirm the theoretical analysis. With the analytical wave functions and experimental patterns, a variety of vortex-lattice structures are manifested.
