Complex vectorial beam state manipulation through gradient index optics

Abstract:

Gradient index (GRIN) lenses are commonly used for compact imaging systems. It is not widely appreciated that the ion-exchange process that creates the rotationally symmetric GRIN lens index profile also causes a symmetric birefringence variation. This property is usually considered a nuisance, such that manufacturing processes are optimized to keep it to a minimum.

Here, rather than avoiding this birefringence, we understand, harness and overcome its effect by using GRIN lenses in...
