Abstract

In the previous paper in this series [J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 7, 1614 (1990)] a formulation was established for the calculation and analysis of diffraction image quality in polarizing optical systems illuminated with partially polarized, partially coherent light. In the present paper the effect of second- and fourth-order polarization aberrations on the image plane diffraction patterns are examined. The amplitude response matrix is calculated for optical systems with small numerical apertures. Numeric results are presented for optical systems with circular apertures for three of the aberration types.
