Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this work we present a setup for the experimental production of cylindrically polarized beams, as well as other variations of polarized light beams. The optical system uses a single transmissive phase-only spatial light modulator, which is used to apply different spatial phase modulation to two output collinear R and L circularly polarized components. Different cylindrically polarized light beams can be obtained by applying different phase shifts to these two circularly polarized components. The system is very efficient since modulation is directly applied to the light beam (as opposed to other common methods operating in the first order of encoded diffraction gratings). Different variations to the cylindrically polarized light beams are also reported, obtained by adding linear or quadratic relative phase shifts between the two circular polarization components of the light beam. Experimental results are provided in all cases.
