Abstract

The propagation and focusing properties of partially coherent vector beams including radially polarized and azimuthally polarized (AP) beams are theoretically and experimentally investigated. The beam profile of a partially coherent radially or AP beam can be shaped by adjusting the initial spatial coherence length. The dark hollow, flat-topped, and Gaussian beam spots can be obtained, which will be useful in trapping particles. The experimental observations are consistent with the theoretical results.
