Abstract

Changes generated by lenslike birefringent elements on the beam-quality parameter of partially polarized beams are investigated. Analytical expressions for the beam-quality gain at the output of such systems are given in terms of the second-order intensity moments of the field. Explicit conditions to improve and optimize the beam-quality parameter after propagation through these birefringent transmittances are also shown.
