Abstract

It is shown that the two mode representations, one with vector modes and the other with scalar modes, for the cross spectral density matrices of electromagnetic beams are equivalent to each other. In particular, we suggest a method to find the vector modes from the scalar modes and formulate the cross spectral density matrix as a correlation matrix.
