New feasibilities for metrology of coherence and polarization of light fields provided by correlation optics approaches are considered. This paper shows these approaches are fruitful in measuring the field parameters that are critical for optical diagnostics using the data on the degree of coherence and the state and the degree of polarization of partially coherent and inhomogeneously polarized fields.
