Paper Abstract

The theory of polarization holographic recording and reconstruction is considered at arbitrary angles of the meeting of working beams. The Jones vector-matrix apparatus, the quantitative ratio of the connection of anisotropy and gyrotropy induced by light with Stokes parameters of active (object + reference) field, and also the modified Kirhgoff diffraction integral has been used to solve the problem. The conditions of the distances and angles of meeting during the formation of the fields of polarization hologram have been received (nonparaxial approximation). It has been shown that depending on the direction of propagation and also on the characteristics of the medium and the polarization state of a reference wave the transformation of the reconstructed images according to the polarization state takes place.
