Diffraction polarization optical elements with radial symmetry

Polarization Optics


Diffraction polarization optics elements with radial symmetry are considered by an example of corner cube reflectors. Diffraction patterns in the far zone of the radiation that is reflected from the angle reflectors with different coatings of their faces are studied. It is shown that the optimal choice of the coating can significantly change the form of the diffraction pattern and, hence, optimize the pattern for various navigation problems.
