On experimental characterization of polarization fluctuation dynamics in random optical beams
2012 (English)In: Applied Optics, ISSN 1559-128X, Vol. 51, no 10, C44-C47 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Polarization correlation functions that characterize the rate of change of the instantaneous polarization state of an arbitrary fluctuating electromagnetic beam were recently introduced. In this work, we describe techniques that enable the measurement of these functions leading to the determination of the so-called polarization time of a random field.
