Longitudinal coherence length of an optical field

Physical Optics

Abstract

Longitudinal coherence of an optical field depending on the parameters of its frequency and angular spectra is considered. Expressions for the function and length of longitudinal coherence depending on the width of the frequency and angular spectra are obtained. The competitive influence of the angular and frequency spectra of the field on its longitudinal coherence is discussed. Experimental studies using a longitudinal shearing Michelson interferometer that proves theoretical results are performed.
