Paper Abstract

The Jones vector and matrix with step function are introduced to simplify the analysis and design of optical polarization multiplexing system. By use of step functions, one Jones vector can express the alternately polarized light with multiple polarization states, and one Jones matrix can describe multiple polarization conversions. Some optical design examples demonstrate the effectiveness of the Jones vector and matrix with step functions, and they are suitable for the analysis and design of the optical polarization multiplexing system.
