Abstract
The difficulties of creation of the unconventional polarization states of the vector beams lead to the search of the alternative formation methods. Both the generation of beams with unconventional polarization states (complex Hermite– Gaussian and Gaussian beams) and the study of the model situation which is realized by the interaction of two orthogonally complete or partially coherent linearly polarized waves or circularly polarized waves in the incidence plane are analyzed in this research. A new parameter – the visibility modulation depth – which allows assessing and analyzing the coherent properties of the mentioned fields is introduced here as well. It is shown that distribution of polarization states, which is formed in the analyzed situation, can be used in applied methods of polarization holography to record three-dimensional images, including amplitude, phase and polarization information.
