Paper Abstract

A novel technique is presented for the computation of the polarization transfer function of optical assemblies with finite reflection coefficients, birefringence, and other parasitic imperfections. The methodology is directly applicable to optical data storage modeling, such as CD/DVD recording optics and the physical recording process.
