Paper Abstract

We analytically show that it is possible to perform coherent imaging by using the classical correlation of two beams obtained by splitting incoherent thermal radiation. The case of such two classically correlated beams is treated in parallel with the configuration based on two entangled beams produced by parametric down-conversion, and a basic analogy is pointed out. The results are compared in a specific numerical example.
