Abstract

The interplay of diffraction and self-focussing nonlinearity in an optical cavity results in the formation of spatial Turing patterns. Using helically-phased pumps, the patterns form on rings and rotate. We show how fully-structured light can be used to gain precise control over the rotation speed.
