Abstract

Correlation can be changed into anticorrelation by superposing thermal and laser light with the same frequency and polarization. Two-photon interference theory is employed to interpret this phenomenon. An experimental scheme is designed to verify the theoretical predictions by employing pseudothermal light to simulate thermal light. The experimental results are consistent with the theoretical results.
