Paper Abstract

Analysis of light intensity modulation problem related to various degrees and states of polarization is discussed in the present paper. The emphasis is put on investigation of modulation depth in elliptically polarized light beam, because of this problem being important in design of light amplitude modulators. In result, the simple corelations between modulation depth and polarization ellipse parameters as well as modulation depth and polarization degree are found. Next, some problems of magneto-optical modulation of partially polarized light are discussed. In result, a procedure to obtain of optimal polarization arrangement for magneto-optical amplitude modulation is presented.
