Abstract

In terms of the so-called irradiance moments of a light field, the beam quality change, ΔQ, of radially and azimuthally polarized beams caused by propagation through a quartic phase plate (as occurs for example, in strongly pumped laser rods used in high-power solid-state lasers) is studied. Analytical expressions for ΔQ are given, and a comparison between the scalar and vectorial regimes is also shown. The results are applied to several cases of interest.
