Paper Abstract

The real optical fields formed by the coherent beams are characterized by the certain distribution of intensity and polarization. The formation of such field is caused by presence in space of several coherent beams with various wave vectors and condition polarization. In research work the analysis of such fields in the determined plane of uniform coordinate system is carried out. It's shown that for the analysis of interferentional picture it's good to use three corners describing space position of the electrical vector in chosen coordinate system. We consider two limit cases: field homogeneous on intensity and with the certain polarizing distribution and its contrary one. The contrasts of the interferentional pictures for a number of characteristic directions of the electrical vector through ellipsometric parameters are determined. The conditions for registration and restoration of polarizing structure of the field in holography are determined.
