Abstract

A matrix method for calculating the polarization aberrations of light beams is discussed in detail. The radiation is represented as a coherent collection of Hermite-Gauss modes with definite amplitude, phase, and polarization state, with the longitudinal component of the field being taken into account. The polarization aberrations of the beam as it passes through a thin lens are considered, taking into account the influence of a circular stop.
