Abstract [en]

We introduce a formalism for characterizing partial polarization in random pulsed electromagnetic beams in time and frequency domains. The connection between the temporal and spectral polarization properties is analyzed, and compared to the analogous relationship in the context of stationary beams. The formalism is demonstrated using as an example a beam whose orthogonal components are delayed copies of the same Gaussian-shaped and Gaussian-correlated linearly polarized pulse. The results show that the temporal and spectral polarization properties are quite different, and the time-dependent polarization behavior of the beam may be tailored by changing the delay between the orthogonal components and their coherence time.
