A reciprocity inequality for Gaussian Schell-model beams and some of its consequences

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

A reciprocity inequality is derived, involving the effective size of a planar, secondary, Gaussian Schell-model source and the effective angular spread of the beam that the source generates. The analysis is shown to imply that a fully spatially coherent source of that class (which generates the lowest-order Hermite–Gaussian laser mode) has certain minimal properties.
