Paper Abstract

It has been shown not long ago by Emil Wolf (1-2), the Young's interference pattern is formed by partially coherent light. The coherent properties of interfering beams from two pinholes after they passed through a moving diffuser are determined by the correlation function of the heights of the diffuser surface and speed with which the diffuser is moving. We report the recent experimental results displaying the Young's interference of light produced by a pair of symmetric Collett-Wolf partially coherent sources. The experimental results are compared with the results of rigorous computer simulations.
