Abstract
In this paper a quantum description of degree of polarization (DOP) is presented. The analysis includes differences between quantum and quasi-classic description of photons and what they are in comparison with coherent states of electric field. In the end a possible interpretation for single-photon experiments is given to allow DOP calculation for photons.
