Singularities of Partially Polarized Vortex beams (JW6B.20)
Presenter: William Raburn, Univ of North Carolina at Charlotte
In this paper we look at three ways to define singularities in a partially coherent electromagnetic beam with non-uniform polarization. A simple model of such a beam is developed to highlight features of such singularities.
