Abstract

We study the Fourier relationship between angle and orbital angular momentum of entangled photons. Spatial light modulators allow us to define and control the spatial mode measurement state. We observe strong quantum correlations, establishing that angular position and momentum distributions between the photons are related as conjugate Fourier pairs.
