Intrinsic Coherence: A New Concept in Polarization and Coherence Theory

The concept of interference has always been critical to our grasp of the nature of the light—from the time of Christiaan Huygens and Isaac Newton to the groundbreaking work of Emil Wolf and Roy Glauber on coherence theory. Building on the latter contributions, these authors analyze intrinsic coherence properties of partially polarized light.
