Abstract

The second-order intensity moments and beam-propagation factor (<i>M</i><sup>2</sup> factor) of partially coherent beams have been generalized to include the case of hard-edged diffraction. A laser beam with amplitude modulation and phase fluctuation and a Gaussian Schell-model beam are taken as two typical examples of partially coherent beams. Analytical expressions for the generalized <i>M</i><sup>2</sup> factor are derived.
