The paper outlines the results of studies on the generation of two-lobe light fields with the intensity distribution rotating during the field propagation. Such fields are needed to determine the depth of bedding of single emitters in spectral studies of substance properties. On the base of the spiral beam optics, the phase distributions were obtained for the synthesis of two-lobe fields with different speeds of rotation of the intensity distribution. The light fields have been formed by using a liquid-crystal spatial phase modulator HOLOEYE HEO-1080P. The influence of the illuminating beam parameters and the aberrations of the system on the quality of the formed light field was also studied.
