Samenvatting

We analyze the evolution of the vortex part of the orbital angular momentum during its propagation through separable first-order optical systems. We obtain that the evolution of the vortex part depends only upon the parameters ax, ay, bx, and by of the ray transformation matrix, and that isotropic systems with the same ratio b/a produce the same change of the vortex part of the orbital angular momentum. Finally, it is shown that when light propagates through an optical fiber with a quadratic refractive index profile, the vortex part of the orbital angular momentum cannot change its sign more than four times per period.
