Abstract

The dependence of ghost images on polarization properties of illumination is revealed. We derive the general formulas pertaining to ghost imaging by means of electromagnetic stochastic beams and, in particular, study the case when the illumination beam belongs to the class of electromagnetic Gaussian Schell-model beams and is incident onto a soft two-dimensional aperture. We find under which conditions that source polarization may reduce/enhance the ghost image and its visibility.
