Recently introduced global parameters for describing the polarization of a beam are used to characterize spirally polarized fields, which include as particular cases azimuthally and radially polarized fields. Theoretical predictions about such global parameters are experimentally confirmed by generating beams with spirally polarized transverse patterns, by means of two different procedures.
