Abstract
The use of radially polarized light is known to produce, when focused by a high-numerical-aperture objective lens, a spot of light whose polarization is predominantly axial. We have generated accurately such radially polarized fields, which we have coupled into a high-numerical-aperture microscope objective so as to produce an axially polarized focal spot.
