Rotating spiral interference pattern created by tuning the optical path length of a reference beam relative to that of a vortex beam. The reference beam co-propagates with the vortex beam and its spherical-wave-like wavefront samples the helicoidal wavefront of the vortex beam, creating a spiral interference pattern. The intersection between the two wavefronts moves along the beam axis when the relative path length between the two beams is adjusted, producing a dynamically rotating spiral pattern.
