Abstract

The propagation of a circularly symmetric laser beam along the optical axis of a c-cut uniaxial crystal is described through the angular plane wave analysis. We show that radial and azimuthal polarization states appear as polarization eigenstates in a c-cut uniaxial crystal. As a consequence, no cross-talk occurs between these eigenstates during beam propagation.
