# State of Polarization, etc.

1. State of polarization(SOP) included linear,circular and ellipse (from some literature). Any other state of polarization found?

2. Please let me know if I was wrong in this; based on my readings, to get broaden wavelength range of spectrum, adjusted polarization controller(PC) required in laser set up. By adjusting the PC mechanically, it will change the state of polarization. So, which state of polarization(SOP) can implied in phase wave propagated? (I'm confusing in relate the SOP and phase concept.)
