Abstract

The possibility of restructuring the spectral density of a random light beam up to three times along the propagation path in free space is demonstrated. This can be achieved by prescribing special correlations and different twist factors (bymagnitude and/or direction) in the two mutually orthogonal electric field components in the source plane. We also show that the degree of polarization of such a light beam can rotate or not on propagation.
