Spatially engineered polarization states and optical vortices in uniaxial crystals
We describe how the propagation of light through uniaxial crystals can be used as a versatile tool towards the spatial engineering of polarization and phase, thereby providing an all-optical technique for vectorial and scalar singular beam shaping in optics. Besides the prominent role played by the linear birefringence, the influence of circular birefringence (the optical activity) is discussed as well and both the monochromatic and polychromatic singular beam shaping strategies are...[Show more]
