Title: Experimental investigation of spiral beam formation by binary spiral axicons

Abstract

In this paper, we demonstrate the possibility of generating spiraling light beams using binary spiral axicons. The influence of the laser wavelength and the axicon numerical aperture on the shape and size of generated spiraling beams is investigated experimentally. We have shown experimentally the possibility of generating spiral beams of different length when laser beams of different wavelengths illuminate a binary spiral axicon. Such beams can be used to manipulate micro- and nanoobjects.

  • Diffraction of uniformly polarized laser beams with vortex phase singularity is theoretically analyzed using the plane wave expansion. It is shown that for a high numerical aperture, an intense longitudinal electric field component is formed on the optical axis in this case. It is numerically demonstrated that an analogous effect is ensured for diffraction of a conventional Gaussian beam from asymmetric binary axicons. The field intensity on the optical axis can be varied either by rotating the optical element or by changing the direction of polarization of radiation.
  • Results of the experimental investigation of a class of spiral spring coil used as a tube side heat transfer augmentative device for a single phase cooling mode operation are presented. SAE 10 engine oil flowing inside the tube is cooled by water flowing outside the tube. This spiral spring insert is inexpensive but it can increase the tube side heat transfer coefficient significantly. Thus its use as an augmentative device is effective. Application of this device in the design of oil coolers is discussed.
  • Experiments on two-particle processes made with the Serpukhov accelerator in collaboration with the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Dubna, are reviewed and the results are compared with theoretical models.
  • The paper presents a study on the convective instability occurring in binary fluid mixtures for a negative separation ratio which is utilized for amplifying intrinsic thermal fluctuations. Experiments are performed in a 1D convection channel which prevents the reflection of traveling waves from the sidewalls. The temperature variations are quantified using the shadowgraph method. The temporal correlation function is calculated from measured light intensity caused by the temperature variations and are compared with a theoretical expression obtained from a Ginzburg-Landau equation containing a noise term. It is assumed that thermal noise is the reason for these fluctuating convecting rolls.
  • A molecular model incorporating surfactant molecular structure, surfactant composition, and solution conditions is described for mixed micellization for aqueous solutions containing binary surfactant mixtures. Micellization free energies, optimum equilibrium values and micellar shape are used to create a molecular thermodynamic formulation to predict various mixed micellar solution properties which ultimately compare favorably with experimental data. 29 refs., 10 figs., 2 tabs.
