Abstract

We derive analytical expressions for the cross-spectral density matrix of polychromatic electromagnetic multi-Gaussian Schell-model (EMGSM) beam transmission through a gradient-index fiber. The space-spectrum evolution properties for the spectral density, spectral shift, degree of polarization, and electromagnetic coherence state of a polychromatic EMGSM beam with Lorentzian line type spectrum and central wavelength λ0=1550  nm propagation in a silica-clad germania core inhomogeneous graded-index fiber are studied in detail. We show that these statistical properties exhibit periodicity in the fiber, caused by the focusing property of square-law media, which can be reminiscent of the self-imaging effect of optical fields. The effects of the nonconventional correlation functions of the polychromatic EMGSM beam on the transmission properties are also investigated.
