(a) and (c) Theoretical line intensity profiles along the vortex centers of POVs with topological charges and , generated with [mm] and [mm], respectively. (b) and (d) Gaussian function and Bessel-modified functions for the topological charges versus radial distance; (b) and (d) were generated using [mm] and [mm], respectively. In (c) and (d), curves are a little bit different and cannot be distinguished by eye.
