Abstract

An electromagnetic Gaussian Schell-model source that produces a random beam may be characterized by eight independent quantities. We show how far-zone measurements of the Stokes parameters, together with the Hanbury Brown–Twiss coefficient, allow one to determine all the source parameters. This method provides, to the best of our knowledge, a new tool to identify distant sources.
