Radiometry and far-zone polarization for partially coherent electromagnetic planar sources
2001 (English)In: Optics Communications, ISSN 0030-4018, E-ISSN 1873-0310, Vol. 197, no 03-jan, 1-8 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Making use of the rigorous vectorial far-field theory the generalized radiance of a stationary electromagnetic planar source is derived and expressions for the radiant intensity and the radiant emittance are introduced in terms of the spatial coherence properties of the source. A method for calculating the degree of polarization of the field in the far zone of an electromagnetic planar source is put forward and two examples demonstrating the technique are worked out.
