Abstract

We derive expressions that allow us to examine the influence of different source parameters on the correlation of intensity fluctuations (the Hanbury Brown–Twiss effect) at two points in the same cross section of a random electromagnetic beam. It is found that these higher-order correlations behave quite differently than the lower-order amplitude-phase correlations that are described by the spectral degree of coherence.
