Abstract

An erroneous procedure of averaging the components of the Stokes vector of a polarization scrambled beam over the Poincaré sphere introduced in our earlier paper [J. Opt. Soc. Am. B 28, 100–108 (2011)] has been corrected.

DOP of the output signal beam as a function of the relative pump beam power for six input SOPs of the pump beam: (a)  ( 0.99 , 0.01 , 0.14 ) (black squares), ( 0.01 , 0.99 , 0.14 ) (red circles), ( 0.01 , 0.01 , 0.9999 ) (green triangles); (b)  ( 0.99 , 0.01 , 0.14 ) (black squares), ( 0.01 , 0.99 , 0.14 ) (red circles), ( 0.01 , 0.01 , 0.9999 ) (green triangles).

Correct averaging. DOP of the output signal beam as a function of the relative pump beam power for three input SOPs of the pump beam: ( 0.99 , 0.01 , 0.14 ) (black squares); ( 0.01 , 0.99 , 0.14 ) (red circles); ( 0.01 , 0.01 , 0.9999 ) (green triangles). The difference between black, red, and green points corresponding to the same power is due to numerical error.
