Abstract
The notion and main conceptual and operational characteristics of the polarization state of quantum radiation are defined within the framework of the P - quasispin formalism developed earlier by the author. This state is shown to be described fully by the polarization density matrix obtained via reducing the field density operator. Basic operational quantities (quantum polarization degree, polarization "noises" , etc.), measured in quantum experiments and displaying peculiarities of polarization states, are defined with the help of P - quasispin components. The idea and features of polarization nonclassical states of quantum light are discussed. In this approach a series of nonclassical states of the biphoton radiation, manifesting unusual (for classical optics) polarization features, are analyzed. Some of applied possibilities of such states are briefly discussed.
