Abstract

Diffraction and interferometry with fast pulses are analyzed for the case that the fields are partially correlated in time and in space. This generalizes a previous work [ Schoonover et al., J. Mod. Opt. 55, 1541 (2008) ], where only the temporal correlations of pulsed fields were considered in a Young’s interferometer. The meaning of the interferograms is addressed for measurements taken in the near, Fresnel, and far zones of the source. It is shown that single-shot measurements cannot generally be used to infer statistical properties of the source, rather, data averaged over many pulses must be used.
