Paper Abstract

The marginal cross-spectral density, a Wigner distribution function allows us to determine the structure of spatial coherence beams. The Fourier spectrum of spatially partial coherent interferograms is described by a triple correlation, which involves the cross-spectral density of the illuminating optical field and the transmittance of the aperture.
