Paper Abstract

A new software package, suitable for performing polarization analysis in optical networks is presented. The user can input any initial state of polarization using Jones and Stokes vectors, the polarization ellipse and the density matrix. Each device and optical network can be defined using Jones and Muller matrices, and the quaternions, which represents the device in terms of the four Pauli matrices. The final state of polarization is calculated, and presented using the methods mentioned above, as well as the graphical representation of the polarization ellipse and the Poincare sphere. The extension to first-order component defects in general ellipsometry is included. It can be used for educational and research purposes.
