Abstract

In this paper, we review our recent work on the statistical properties of polarization speckle with its unique properties of random polarization states fluctuating in space. From random walks of polarization phasor, we provide the origins of the polarization speckle by taking the vector nature into account for stochastic electric fields. Based on the random polarization phasor sum as an extension of conventional random phasor sum, the first and second moments of the Stokes parameters of the resultant polarization speckle have been examined. Two types of devices for polarization optics, i.e. rough-surfaced retardation plate and random polarizer array, will be introduced as the physical realization of the desired phenomena of polarization speckles. Some statistical properties of the stochastic electric fields are reviewed in order to understand the performance of these two polarization optics devices for generation and development of the polarization speckle.
