Abstract

Based on the theory of coherence and polarization of stochastic electromagnetic pulses, the analytical expression for the spectral degree of polarization of stochastic spatially and spectrally partially coherent electromagnetic pulses propagating in dispersive media is derived. Numerical calculations are performed to show the dependence of spectral degree of polarization on the spatial correlation length, temporal coherence length, pulse duration, pulse frequency, and medium dispersion. The results are interpreted physically.
