Although polarisation properties of light waves have recently been utilised for a number of image processing applications, many aspects of vector nature of light relevant to the imagery problems have still remained unexplored. In the present article, we have studied the effects of polarisation masks of different nature on the lens aperture on the imaging characteristics of the lens. The imaging characteristics of a birefringent lens have also been reported. The study reveals that the imaging systems using such polarisation devices will lend an additional dimension to the optical image processing and will yield results unachievable with scalar waves. The possible applications of the imaging systems making use of polarising devices have been indicated.
