Abstract

An experimental technique for the synthesis of statistical properties of a randomly fluctuating polarized field is investigated and experimentally demonstrated. The technique offers the controlled synthesis of coherence and polarization and subsequent analysis of the synthesized field is carried out by making use of two-point intensity correlation and the speckle holographic technique. The controlled synthesis is achieved by using an aperture of specific size at the source plane and generating a vortex in one of the orthogonal polarization components of the polarized field, thereby producing a singularity in off-diagonal elements of the coherence-polarization matrix.
