Abstract

The problem of determining the phase ø of the complex degree of coherence γof a light beam from measurements of its modulus |γ|is considered. If a reference beam of light with an exactly known complex degree of coherence is available, then the phase ø may be determined from an additional experiment in which the two beams are superimposed.
