  9. When a monitor station is used to link two radio transmitters they are no longer independent and the radiation field close to the transmitters becomes spatially coherent [See L. Mandel and E. Wolf, J. Opt. Soc. Am. 51, 815 (1961), and G. B. Parrent, Optica Acta (Paris) 6, 285 (1959).] in the sense that, for some value η, the degree of coherence |γ12(η) | ≈ 1 [see Born and Wolf5 for the definition of γ12(τ)]. However, this has no relevance to the question of temporal coherence; that is, how long phase correlation of the radiation extends in time, which is always determined by the finite coherence time Δτ.

  12. If the cross section of the beams is much greater than the coherence area, then the beams may be expected to give rise to a number of statistically independent fringe patterns, each of which extends approximately over a coherence area.
