Paper Abstract

It was investigated basic features of inhomogeneous polarized vector light fields. It was shown both theoretically and experimentally, how the actual topological elements, namely singular points and lines, saddles and traversing them bifurcation lines, are jointed in the structural units (quadruples, dipoles, etc.). In turn, these units are jointed in unified polarization patterns, or topological networks. It was investigated transformations of polarization pattern under guided perturbations. Arrangement of polarization ellipses of all other points of field, i.e. morphology, is defined by polarization pattern topology.
