Abstract [en]

For an electromagnetic beam described by Gaussian statistics the normalized intensity fluctuations are known to depend on the beam's degree of polarization. With general non-paraxial random electromagnetic waves, such as optical near fields, a complete characterization of the polarization state requires a 3 x 3 coherence matrix and a three-dimensional degree of polarization. We demonstrate that, under the assumption of Gaussian statistics, the normalized intensity fluctuations in the three-dimensional case are expressible in terms of the three-dimensional degree of polarization. Since such a general description can be employed even for beams with only a transverse electric field, several important physical results follow from comparison of the three-dimensional and usual two-dimensional formulations. The results are expected to be particularly important in intensity interferometry.
