Abstract

A new technique to determine generalized Stokes parameters by making use of the speckle holographic technique and the two-point intensity correlation is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. Assuming Gaussian statistics and spatial stationarity, a speckle hologram is generated prior to the fourth-order correlation, i.e., the two-point intensity correlation. This measurement technique offers a complete retrieval of complex generalized Stokes parameters. The application of the proposed technique is experimentally demonstrated for two different, random source structures.
