Abstract

It was shown recently that the basic properties of a fluctuating electromagnetic beam can be derived from knowledge of a 2 × 2 cross-spectral density matrix of the electric field in the source plane. However, not every such matrix represents a source that will generate a beamlike field. We derive conditions that the matrix must satisfy for the source to generate an electromagnetic Gaussian Schell-model beam.
