Paper Abstract

A method to create homogenous polarized light based on non-quadrature amplitude modulation is proposed. This method consists in the addition of two fields out of phase different from and in the variation of their amplitudes only for obtaining a resulting field modulated in both phase and amplitude. This principle is used to modulate the vertical component in both phase and amplitude, while the horizontal component is varied in amplitude only keeping constant its phase, thus any amplitude relation and phase difference between components can be created and therefore any polarization state could be obtained. A theoretical model will be shown, and it will be sustained with numerical simulations of several polarization examples.
