Orbital angular momentum (OAM) multiplexing has emerged as an important method to increase the communication capacities in future optical information technologies. In this work, we demonstrate a silicon integrated OAM (de)multiplexer with a very simple structure. By simply tapping the evanescent wave of two different whispering gallery modes rotating inside a multimodal micro-ring resonator, four in-plane waveguide modes are converted to four free-space vector OAM beams with high mode purity. We further demonstrate chip-to-chip OAM multiplexing transmission using a pair of silicon devices, which shows low-level mode crosstalk and favorable link performance.
