Abstract:
Analytical formula for the cross-spectral density matrix of a twisted electromagnetic Gaussian Schell-model (TEGSM) beam propagating through an astigmatic ABCD optical system in gain or absorbing media is derived based on the unified theory of coherence and polarization. Generalized tensor ABCD law in media is derived. As an application example, the evolution properties of the degree of polarization of a TEGSM beam in a Gaussian cavity filled with gain media are studied numerically in detail. It is shown that the behavior of the degree of polarization depends on the parameters of the gain media and the TEGSM beam. Our results will be useful for the spatial modulation of polarization properties of stochastic electromagnetic beam.
