Abstract

Squared elementary cells with correlated radiant point sources are presented as basic structures for characterizing the propagation of the field emitted by two-dimensional planar sources of any shape and in arbitrary state of spatial coherence. The field is transported on a finite expansion of nonparaxial modes, whose propagation in the micro-diffraction domain is discussed under both the diffraction and the interference conditions.
