We present a new scheme for a vortex beam communications system which exploits the radial component p of Laguerre-Gauss modes in addition to the azimuthal component l generally used. We derive a new encoding algorithm which makes use of the spatial distribution of intensity to create an alphabet dictionary for communication. We suggest an application of the scheme as part of an optical wireless link for intra data center communication. We investigate the probability of error in decoding, for several detector options.
