Abstract
In the present work we extend the intensity-moment spatial characterization to partially polarized beams by means of a generalization of the Stokes-Mueller formalism. A simple classification scheme of partially polarized beams is proposed and propagation laws through non-polarizing and polarizing optical systems are provided. Some invariant parameters are investigated and a general measuring procedure is pointed out.
