Based on the beam coherence-polarization (BCP) matrix approach and propagation law of partially coherent beams, the propagation of partially polarized Gaussian Schell-model (PGSM) beams through an aperture is studied. Numerical calculation results are given to illustrate the propagation-induced polarization changes and irradiance distribution of PGSM beams for the apertured case.

Keywords: aperture; beam coherence-polarization (BCP) matrix; partially polarized Gaussian Schell-model (PGSM) b; propagation property
