Abstract

Following our recent approach in which the Jones matrix calculus was applied to a modulated double-refracted and partially interfering light beam propagating in a homogeneous electro-optic crystal [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 21, 132 (2004) ], we generalize the method for any distribution of the light intensity. Special attention is paid to Gaussian, flat-topped Gaussian, and quasi-Gaussian beams for which the intensity of the light emerging from the optical system is found analytically. Application of the method to an optical system with an electro-optic crystal is described.
