Probing coherence Stokes parameters of three-component light with nanoscatterers

Abstract

We establish a method to determine the spectral coherence Stokes parameters of a random three-component optical field via scattering by two dipolar nanoparticles. We show that measuring the intensity and polarization-state fringes of the scattered far field in three directions allows us to construct all nine coherence Stokes parameters at the dipoles. The method extends current nanoprobe techniques to detection of the spatial coherence of random light with arbitrary three-dimensional polarization structure.
