Abstract

Central to this thesis has been the characterisation and exploitation of the opportunities afforded by the electromagnetic (i.e. vectorial) nature of light. To this end the work presented can be seen to follow one of three running themes: quantification of polarisation information; analytic formulations so as to simplify the propagation of electromagnetic waves; and development of specific polarisation based optical systems.
