Control and manipulation of the parameters scuh as shape, phase, amplitude and frequency of the electromagnetic pulses are very important in fundamental science and engineering and telecomunication. As an another parameter, electromagnetic pulses are able to carry spin and orbital angular momentum2. Orbital angular momentum carrying lasers are called as twisted light or optical vortex. The angular momentum of light can be manipulated and transferred to quantum systems3. In this study, we investigate the effect of angular momentum transferred to the quantum systems on electron dynamics, the induced current and induced magnetic pulse4,5,6. We will show that a laser pulse in the range of picosecond and femtosecon can be transformed to a same range magnetic field.
