We demonstrate orbital angular momentum (OAM) transfer by chiral plasmonic nanostructures designed on both sides of a thin suspended metallic membrane. We show how far-field vortex beams with tunable OAM indices can be tailored through nanostructure designs. We reveal the crucial role played by the central aperture that connects the two sides of the membrane from which OAM selection rules are derived in perfect agreement with experimental data.
