Abstract

Blind source separation of two electromagnetic fields is investigated. The difficulty of this task lies in the fact that only the power, which is the square of the sum of the electromagnetic fields, can be directly measured; the cross term of the electromagnetic fields is inevitable, and a strong correlation occurs in blind deconvolution. However, the relative phase is physically different from the field intensities, and, hence, extracting the phase during separation seems inconceivable. Our results demonstrate that the intensities and the relative phase of two electromagnetic waves can be determined with eigenvalue problem formalism even when the mixing processes are completely unknown.
