Complete quantum mechanical treatment of multipole radiation is constructed. Vacuum noise of polarization for transversally and longitudirudly polcirized fields is discussed for different total angular momentum values due to the presence of quantum localized sources. It is shown that the spatial properties of the multipole vacuum noise are independent of the type of the radiation, either electric or magnetic. New definition of polarization matrix constructed from the field-strength tensor, Ricci Tensor, is introduced. Using Jaynes-Cummings model Hamiltonian for electrical dipole atom, some statistical properties of the rcidiation are considered. A new method for polarization measurement at short and intermediate distances from the source, based on the use of optical Aharonov-Bohm effect is proposed which is classified as a quantum nondemolition measurement. This proposed experiment leads to measure the longitudinal pohirization and spcicetirne correlation of polarizations of multipole radiation.
