This article describes an experimental study of the optical vortex formation using beams reflected from a combination of two cube-corner reflectors with a special interference phase-­shifting coating. As predicted earlier, if arranged properly, these cube-corner reflectors create a spatial polarization structure, that can be called an optical vortex, since the plane of oscillations of thе vector E rotates with azimuth variation in the transverse plane. This enables an easy way of creating such vortices, albeit with some difficulties due to the need for precise optical path control and vortices themselves created in far field.
