Spatial coherence and information entropy in optical vortex fields

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We show how a vortex structure manifests itself in the one-dimensional projection of a vortex field. We calculate the extent of spatial coherence and entropy of such projections. We quantify the spatial coherence and discuss the properties of the Wigner functions for the projected field.
