Abstract

We demonstrated tunable mixed classical light (TMCL) using a mixture of a laser and a pseudothermal light. The TMCL was generated by adjusting the photon number ratio of a laser and a pseudothermal light. The photon number statistics of the TMCL continuously changed from the Poisson distribution to the Bose–Einstein distribution. The g ( 2 ) ( 0 ) value of the TMCL was measured using the Hanbury Brown–Twiss method, and we could arbitrarily control the g ( 2 ) ( 0 ) value between 1.0 and 1.7. The experimental g ( 2 ) ( 0 ) value of the TMCL as a function of the photon number ratio of the two light sources was in close agreement with the calculated result.
