Van Cittert–Zernike theorem and symmetry properties of the normalized cross-spectral density matrix

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The van Cittert–Zernike theorem is formulated for the normalized cross-spectral density matrix of fields emitted by spatially incoherent sources. This formulation shows that sources with homogeneous polarization characteristics at second-order lead in the far field to normalized cross-spectral density matrices that possess high-symmetry properties. These symmetry properties are lost with polarization inhomogeneities of the source. These results are illustrated with ring-shaped sources.
