'Nonlocal' dispersion cancelation with classical light
2009 (English)In: New Journal of Physics, ISSN 1367-2630, Vol. 11Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We show a classical analog of the original nonlocal dispersion cancelation effect in intensity interferometry with stationary light obeying Gaussian statistics. The dispersion compensation is due to the uncorrelation of the spectral components of the radiation. Although this classical counterpart phenomenon is not nonlocal in a strict quantum mechanical sense, it suggests that some second-order interference devices relying on temporal entanglement do not require a quantum light source.
