The polarization in isotropic radially symmetric lens and mirror systems in the paraxial approximation is examined. Polarized aberrations are variations in the phase, amplitude, and polarization state of the electromagnetic field across the exit pupil. Some are dependent on the incident polarization state and some are not. Expressions through fourth order for phase, amplitude, linear diattenuation, and linear retardance aberrations are derived in terms of the chief and marginal ray angles of… Expand
Orthogonal polynomials describing polarization aberration for rotationally symmetric optical systems.
TLDR
A new orthonormal set of polynomials is established to describe the polarization aberration of rotationally symmetric optical systems and can simultaneously reveal the distribution rules of polarization Aberration on the exit pupil and the field. Expand
