Abstract

We experimentally implement an optical algorithm for integration of a real-valued bivariate function. A user-defined function is encoded in the position-dependent phase of one of the polarization components of an optical beam. The integral of this function is retrieved by measuring a Stokes parameter of the polarization. We analyze the performance of the system as an integration device.
