The orbital angular momentum (OAM) based communication is a promising technology in the wireless communication system for its improving spectrum efficiency. However, for the OAM demultiplexing, it requires a very large aperture size in the receiving end due to the OAM beam divergence and the amplitude null in the beam center, which restricts the full development of OAM based communication. In this paper, we propose a novel partial arc sampling receiving (PASR) scheme based on the augmented dynamic mode decomposition (ADMD) to solve this issue. We explore the use of the phase delay coordinates in the conventional DMD to sort the arbitrary OAM modes with arc sampling receiving. Simulation results demonstrate the accuracy and robustness of the proposed approach in sorting both integral and fractional OAM modes with the PASR scheme. Our work offers a practical approach for demultiplexing OAM beams in radio communication systems with fewer receiving devices, especially for the long-distance transmission case.
