Abstract
In this paper, a new method for converting a single radial polarization beam into an arbitrary radially polarized array (RPA) beam such as a radial or rectangular symmetry array in the focal plane by modulating a periodic correlation structure is introduced. The realizability conditions for such source and the beam condition for radiation generated by such source are derived. It is illustrated that both the amplitude and the polarization are controllable by means of initial correlation structure and coherence parameter. Furthermore, by designing the source correlation structure, a tunable NUST-shaped RPA beam is demonstrated, which can find widespread applications in micro-nano engineering. Such a method for generation of arbitrary vector array beams is useful in beam shaping and optical tweezers.
