Abstract

The general problem of multiple-beam interference with partially coherent quasimonochromatic light is discussed. Both one-dimensional and two-dimensional regular and irregular arrays of apertures are treated. The coherence functions that are dealt with here are those arising naturally from incoherent, quasimonochromatic slit and circular sources, i.e., sin<i>x</i>/<i>x</i> and 2<i>J</i><sub>1</sub>(<i>x</i>)/<i>x</i> correlation functions. Several experimental examples are included.
