The effect of an incident field with a phase screw dislocation (a so-called optical vortex) on the shape of the enhanced backscattering cone was studied theoretically and demonstrated experimentally. We show that the correlation function of the incident field acts as a filter that modifies the shape of the enhanced backscattering cone. The peak value is reduced, and its width is increased as the topological charge of the phase dislocation increases. (c) 2005 Optical Society of America
