Abstract

The complex degree of coherence and the resulting van Cittert–Zernike theorem are employed to analyze the exit of an arbitrary amplitude-division interferometer with two-beam interferences. Considering that the source is a periodic array of spatially incoherent slits and assuming negligible equivalent aberrations and no vignetting, an expression for the complex degree of coherence as a function of the position of an exit point is derived. Formulas for the location, fringe spacing, and fringe localization depth of the multilocalized fringes are given.
