Abstract

The interaction of an electromagnetic Gaussian Schell-model (EGSM) beam with a Gaussian cavity is analyzed. In particular, the evolution of the degree of polarization of the EGSM beam is investigated. The results show that the behavior of the degree of polarization depends on both the statistical properties of the source that generates the EGSM beam and the parameters of the cavity.
