Abstract

A study of the spectral shifts of a well-known type of partially coherent field, namely, one formed by Gaussian Schell model beams, propagating beyond an optical system reveals that there are no shifts in the geometric-image plane, whereas the greatest (blue) shift occurs in the back focal plane. These results are relevant for spectroradiometric measurements.
