WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IT DOES

But we want one.

If there's a Minglie in your hedgerow
Yes, there are two terahertz radiation paths you can go by
The direct emission laser is calling you to join him
Dear lady, can you hear the Rayleigh diffraction limit
And did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering q-plate?

The Roswell space aliens knew all about a multidiminsional vortex generator and said building a large one is a super bad idea. They call them a "Thingulator" because it causes everything to happen all at once and explode. The Crab Nebula is a remnant of the last known attempt to activate a Thingulator. Of course it was known as the Crab planet before the supernova happened.
This explosion was so powerful it tilted the planet Uranus sideways. The aliens said if Earth scientists want to actually activate, to watch Uranus,

I think it's optional equipment for the main deflector dish on the Starship Voyager.

*Dr. Evil voice*

It's a "LASER"...

This is basic equipment for regulating interspace particle beaming.
Without it the Heidelberg Compensater can't function thus risking galactic chaos.

"Among OPOs, those pumped from femtosecond fiber lasers provide tunable ultrafast pulses with formidable performance:"
I think I'm getting turned on.

In unrelated news, I'm still single.

Didn't Calvin of 'Calvin and Hobbs' have one of those or was he just trying to build one to go with his transmorgifier?

"For applications in quantum optics and super-resolution imaging, a laser source capable of generating vortices over a wide spectral range is essential." Well, clearly we need these in our new TV's. Imma go check Best Buy now to see if they have them yet.

Dang it, I'm fresh out of dilithium crystals.

If this thing'll work as a squirrel extinction device, I've got the checkbook ready.

So my buddy had one of these. He didn't set it up right and it sliced both of his ears right off.

Don't cross the streams.

Wow! If you hook that up in series with a flux capacitor, you got something!

Can it core an apple?

I saw the word " doughnut ", and that's all I need to know.

"...pairs...can synchronize with the pump and oscillate simultaneously." A prime example of the vulgar filth that passes for literature these days. I am outraged. Whatever happened to common decency?

I just can't keep up with the technology anymore. I'm still trying to hunt down a beryllium sphere for my Omega 13.

If I get this, will it impress the ladies?

The important part:

"Two mutually incoherent sources with one Gaussian beam and one vortex beam could break the Rayleigh diffraction limit, which can be applied for super-resolution imaging, so a two-channel vortex beam generator is most desirable,"

And the key words in there are "mutually incoherent", which pretty much says it all. But I agree, that it, whatever it is, is desirable. Anything that can break the Rayleigh diffration limit is something I want.

Can you use it to start a charcoal grill?

Plan 9 continues.

Hu's on first.

I lost interest in a femtosecond.

@pogo - Do you mean to say you actually understood the article?!?! I'd point to the part where I got lost, but the writer wasn't using MOTW's colored chalk, so I'm not sure. I think it was somewhere in the first sentence....

Is that a multidimensional, dual-channel vortex beam generator in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?

Chewie, lock down the dual-channel vortex beam generator or we'll never make the Kessel run in twelve parsecs!
