Degree of polarization of non-uniformly partially polarized beams: a proposal

By Gemma María Piquero Sanz, Jesús María Movilla Serrano, Pedro Miguel Mejías Arias and Rosario Martínez Herrero


Two overall parameters are proposed to characterize the degree of polarization and its uniformity across the transversal section of non-uniformly partially polarized beams. Such parameters can be measured according to the well-known standard methods used to obtain the Stokes parameters, with the addition of a CCD camera to determine the beam intensity at each point of the observation plane
