Paper Abstract

Cahill-Glauber C(s)-correspondence is employed to construct Quasi-Probability Distribution Functions (QPDFs) for optical-polarization in phase space following equivalent description of polarization in Classical Optics. The proposed scheme provides pragmatic insights as compared to obscure SU (2) quasi-distributions on Poincare sphere. QPDF (Wigner function) of bi-modal quadrature coherent states is evaluated and numerically investigated to demonstrate the application.
