“Spatial mode manipulation in communications and imaging”. The ability to analyse and control light’s spatial properties is a fundamental requirement in many disciplines throughout optical physics. Imaging is an obvious example, where how light occupies space is measured directly to reveal details of the object being imaged. However other applications such as telecommunications and the field of Space Division Multiplexing are also increasingly looking to the spatial properties of light as a means of increasing information capacity.
