A method of generating an electromagnetic Gaussian Schell-model source from two coherent linearly polarized plane waves is described. This method involves two mutually correlated phase-only liquid-crystal spatial light modulators placed in the arms of a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. The sources produced by this method can be used to generate a wide class of electromagnetic beams with prescribed coherence and polarization properties.
