Abstract

Polarization correlation functions that characterize the rate of change of the instantaneous polarization state of an arbitrary fluctuating electromagnetic beam were recently introduced. In this work, we describe techniques that enable the measurement of these functions leading to the determination of the so-called polarization time of a random field.
