    Abstract

    We describe observation and analysis of optical vortex patterns in a unidirectional ring oscillator with photorefractive nonlinearity. Including field rotation in the resonator leads to novel structures, including counterrotating rings of optical vortices with opposite helicity. A modal analysis is used to explain the observed patterns.
