FIG. 1.

Configuration for real-time space-variant polarization measurements. HR—high reflection mirror with nearly 100% reflectivity and PR—partial reflection mirror with 80% reflectivity. Inset shows the captured frame when the input beam is unpolarized.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

Poincare sphere representation of three known input states of polarization and the corresponding measured states of polarization. The darker (red) arrows denote the three orthogonal input states of polarization, the lighter (blue) arrows denote the corresponding measured states of polarization. Insets show the detected intensity distributions of the six beams for each input polarization state.

FIG. 3.

Measured results of the full state of polarization of a linear polarized beam passing through a fractured and stressed glass plate.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Experimental results of the spectrum and the polarization states of the light emerging from a fiber laser with two wavelengths. (a) The spectrum of the light where the two lasing wavelengths are denoted as and ; (b) the corresponding polarization states on a normalized Poincare sphere denoted as the two blue arrows.
