The condition under which a product of two cross-spectral densities (CSD) constitutes a valid correlation function is established. The results are obtained for the CSDs of two one-dimensional, scalar Schell-model sources, but can be readily generalized to other situations. It is shown via a number of numerical examples how new source classes of Schell-model type and the beam-like fields they radiate can be designed.
