Abstract

Intensity fluctuations of partially polarized light with Gaussian statistics are investigated using a field decomposition approach. These developments provide an enlightening interpretation of the Hanbury Brown–Twiss effect of partially polarized Gaussian light. In particular, the behavior of the intensity fluctuation correlations can be interpreted as resulting from the mixing of two incoherent lights between themselves.
