Abstract

In a recent Letter [Opt. Lett. 24, 584 (1999)], Gori analyzed polarization gratings and proposed using them as a tool to measure Stokes parameters. Most of his analysis dealt with the near field, but practical exploitation of his approach relies on the far field. A discussion focusing on the far field is presented, and recipes are suggested for actual implementations of such devices.
