Abstract

Information on the degree of coherence of electromagnetic optical waves that is contained both in intensity modulation and in spatial polarization modulation of the resulting distribution of superposing waves is considered. Such an experimental situation is often realized in near-field optics. The possibility of experimental estimation of the degree of mutual coherence of waves polarized at the incidence plane is shown.
