Abstract

Partially coherent light provides attractive benefits in imaging, beam shaping, free-space communications, random medium monitoring, among other applications. However, the experimental characterization of the spatial coherence is a difficult problem involving second-order statistics represented by four-dimensional functions that cannot be directly measured and analyzed. In addition, real-world applications usually require quantitative characterization of the local spatial coherence of a beam in the absence of a priori information, together with fast acquisition and processing of the experimental data. Here we propose and experimentally demonstrate a technique that solves this problem. It comprises an optical setup developed for automatized video-rate measurement and a method -phase-space tomographic coherenscopy-allowing parallel data acquisition, processing, and analysis. This technique significantly simplifies the spatial coherence analysis and opens up new perspectives for the development of tools exploiting the degrees of freedom hidden into light coherence.
