An approach for experimental modeling of elementary field cells with heterogeneous polarization is proposed. It is shown that such cells may be obtained by the superposition of orthogonally linearly polarized waves with relatively simple phase surfaces and close intensities. The experimental arrangement for obtaining elementary field cells is suggested. The characteristics of a polarization cell may be easily changed by the change of superposed beam parameters. The results of experimental investigation are presented.
