Abstract

The theory of the intrinsic coherence, originally developed for 2D fields, is generalized in order to analyze coherence properties of light with a polarization that can fluctuate in three dimensions. Several notions, such as the concept of mean-square coherence and the capacity to describe irreversible behaviors, are demonstrated and illustrated with the example of light in 3D disordered media with frozen and nonfrozen disorders.
