Abstract

The second-order theory of partial coherence for scalar and TE or TM fields is developed for weakly periodic media, and the van Cittert-Zernike theorem of classical coherence theory is generalized for such media. The coherence properties of a wave field, generated by a quasi-homogeneous source distribution at the entrance plane of a finite weakly periodic medium, are calculated both inside such a structure and in the far field. The second-order theory of partial coherence for pulse propagation through weakly periodic media is also developed.
