Beam conditions for radiation generated by an electromagnetic Gaussian Schell-model source
Abbreviated Journal Title
POLARIZATION; COHERENCE; Optics
It was shown recently that the basic properties of a fluctuating electromagnetic beam can be derived from knowledge of a 2 x 2 cross-spectral density matrix of the electric field in the source plane. However, not every such matrix represents a source that will generate a beamlike field. We derive conditions that the matrix must satisfy for the source to generate an electromagnetic Gaussian Schell-model beam. (C) 2004 Optical Society of America.
