Abstract We report on an experiment demonstrating the conservation of the orbital an I gular momentum in stimulated down-conversion. It has been demonstrated that the orbital angular momentum is not transferred to the individual beams of the spontaneous down-conversion. It is also known that it is conserved when twin photons are taken individually. We observe the conservation law for an individual beam of the down-conversion through cavity-free stimulated emission.
