Encoding and Direct Detection of Continuous Variable Entanglement in the Orbital Angular Momentum Space

CV entangled beams carrying OAM are successfully generated by converting entangled polarization modes into vortex beams. Entanglement is detected by homodyning in the OAM space with the homodyne local oscillator switching between different OAM states.
