An experimental procedure for the synthesis of a class of partially polarized Gaussian Schell-model sources is proposed. The experimental set-up is based on Mach-Zenhder interferometer. This kind of sources give rise to not only a coherence degree and intensity profile that are both Gaussian but also a Gaussian local degree of polarization in each plane upon free propagation. Measurements of the local degree of polarization and the intensities in the far field are presented. It is shown that from these measurements some characteristic parameters of the source can be obtained.
