Paper Abstract

For general non-dispersive optical systems, the existence of quasimonochromatic planar sources with different states of partial polarization that generate identical intensity distributions at the output plane of the system has been investigated. By using the procedure outlined by the authors in previously reported works, the common characteristic and the relationship that must be satisfied by the coherence matrix of all these sources have been determined.
