Arrays of coherently coupled Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) serve as functional light sources for applications in optical interconnection schemes. This article presents experimentally and theoretically coupled VCSELs arrays with novel emission patterns, in which each VCSEL element is emitting an optical vortex. Focus is on the coupling mechanism between vortex VCSEL oscillators, the vortex charge conservation as a tool for tailoring desired far-field.
