Abstract

In this paper, we show that arrayed polarization singularities (PSs) can be generated by interference of three polarized waves. An experimental setup was proposed and used to produce one of the available types of array structures. We then analytically identified factors that control the structures of these arrays and classified all the structures into three types. Simulation results were used to assist this analysis.
