Abstract

Propagation properties of polarized four-petal Gaussian beams along the optical axis of uniaxially anisotropic crystals were investigated. Based on the paraxially vectorial theory of beam propagation, analytic expressions of the diffraction light field were obtained. The effects of the anisotropy on the polarization properties of the diffracted four-petal Gaussian beams have also been explained by numerical method. The results elucidate that the linear polarization state and the symmetry of the incident beams cannot be kept during propagation in anisotropic crystals.
