Paper Abstract

This paper describes the general methodology for computationally tracking an arbitrarily polarized complex monochromatic field through an arbitrary optical system, composed of reflectors, in 3 space. The polarization properties of the field can be spatially varying allowing for spatially dependent angles of incidence and surface, eg., coating, properties. The Jones calculus is employed which is amenable to the complex field description that is employed with diffractive propagations.
