The first term on the right is dependent on polarization and hence it is called spin angular momentum S and the second term is independent of polarization and depends on spatial distribution and identified with orbital angular momentum L.
To test corkscrew-based entanglement, researchers led by Anton Zeilinger of the University of Vienna entangled pairs of photons (A and B) via polarization, then sent a bunch of photon B's through an instrument that converted polarization into orbital angular momentum.
In these systems, you have three angular momenta, all changing direction with respect to the plane of the orbit -- the two spin angular momenta and the one orbital angular momentum," Kesden said.

Hence, the bistability of magnetization can be achieved by changing the contribution of the orbital angular momentum term.
the orbital angular momentum and pseudo-orbital angular momentum are given by I = [absolute value of ]k +1/2] - 1/2 and I = [absolute value of k -1/2] -1/2, respectively.
The 12 papers of this collection describe the phenomenon of orbital angular momentum of light and its applications, detailing the authors' research and methodology, with diagrams, formulae, and bibliography included with each contribution.
The latter two effects are relativistic and thus quite weak at solar system velocities, but they can nonetheless be significant as they can lead to secular changes in orbital angular momentum and energy.
All photons of light already carry an intrinsic angular momentum endowed by nature, but the added helical twist superimposes an additional orbital angular momentum onto the photons.
