Abstract

From a theoretical point of view, the use of anisotropic pure-phase plates (APP) is considered in order to improve the quality parameter of certain partially coherent, partially polarized beams. It is shown that, to optimize the beam-quality parameter, the phases of the two Cartesian components of the field at the output of the APP plate should be identical and should exhibit a quadratic dependence on the radial polar coordinate.
