Paper Abstract

Polarization is one of the key features of light wave. generation of light beams with required polarization is an issue worth studying. In this paper, we propose a new method by which arbitrarily polarized light beam can be formed in specified output plane. Several simulated results about axial-symmetric polarization are obtained by use of our proposed scheme and the scheme proposed by. [J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 38 (2005) 827-832]. It is clear that simulated results with use of our scheme are more agreed with the ideal beam. In addition, several other polarized beams are also simulated. From all simulated results, they are all showed that a beam with arbitrary polarization distribution can be obtained by use of our proposed scheme.
