dc.description.abstract Novel laser beams were created using digital holograms written to a spatial light modulator – a miniature LCD display. A laser was demon - strated with such a device as the back mirror, creating a holographic mirror for laser beams on demand. Following this, laser beams were realised experimentally with the ability to self-heal after an obstruction. Firstly, a new means for the self-healing was discovered based on the angular momentum of light. Secondly, a new class of laser beam was produced that self-heals over distances extending to infinity. The outcome has advanced our understanding of laser beams and resonators. en_ZA
