Abstract

Propagation theories of partially coherent electromagnetic fields based on coherent mode decomposition or separated-coordinate mode decomposition are proposed. With the proposed propagation theories, various powerful theories for the propagation of fully coherent electromagnetic fields can be used for the propagation of partially coherent electromagnetic fields. The proposed theories are applicable to any propagation problem of partially coherent electromagnetic fields governed by linear Maxwell equations. Some examples are provided to illustrate the validity of the proposed theories.
