Partially coherent sources with non-conventional coherence properties present unusual behaviors during propagation, which have potential application in fields like optical trapping and microscopy. Recently, partially coherent sources exhibiting circular coherence have been introduced and experimentally realized. Among them, the so-called pseudo Schell-model sources present coherence properties that depend only on the difference between the radial coordinates of two points. Here, the intensity and coherence properties of the fields radiated from pseudo Schell-model sources with a degree of coherence of the besinc type are analyzed in detail. A sharpening of the intensity profile is found for the propagated beam by appropriately selecting the coherence parameters. As a possible application, the trapping of different types of dielectric nanoparticles with this kind of beam is described.
