  Vector beam is a light beam with spatially modulated polarization state across the beam. Particular examples of vector beam are radial and azimuthal polarization which have donut-shaped intensity and radially and azimuthally oriented linear polarization state. Vector beam has long been interest in the laser community and it is well known that vector beam can be created by superposing two optical vortex beams which have spiral wave fronts. It has been demonstrated that optical vortex beam can be generated from a helical undulator as harmonics. Therefore, we propose a scheme to generate vector beam by superposing two optical vortex beams from two helical undulators in tandem, based on the principle of the ’crossed undulator’. The experiment was carried out at UVSOR BL1U. In this paper, we describe the principle and the experimental details.
