Measuring spatial coherence by using a reversed-wavefront Young interferometer

Abstract

A very simple optical setup for the measurement of the modulus and the phase of the two-point correlation function of a partially coherent light field is presented. The system consists of a slightly modified version of a Young interferometer and requires a single Young mask in order to determine the correlation function at any pairs of points. Experimental results are presented for the case of a synthesized partially coherent secondary source.
