Abstract [en]

We analyze the classic Hanbury Brown-Twiss effect for thermal electromagnetic fields in space-frequency domain. We compare two different approaches and show that the normalized correlation of intensity fluctuations is fully characterized by the spectral electromagnetic degree of coherence, a result analogous to scalar analysis of the effect. Differences between the two approaches are discussed.
