The femtosecond pulses with modest peak powers that retain their initial radial transverse symmetry was studied. The initial polarization of the pulse varied and the polarization state was recorded along the propagation path. The results indicated that tight correlation between the evolution of the pulse wave form along the propagation distance and certain global polarization state could provide yet another tool to extract information on dynamics of pulses and opportunity to correlate experiment and theory.
