The temporal coherence function of the femtosecond pulse train from femtosecond optical frequency comb (FOFC) has been studied. The theoretical derivation, which is based on the electric field equations of a pulse train, has been used to model the temporal coherence function of the FOFC and shows good agreement with experimental measurements which are taken with a modified Michelson interferometer. The theoretical and experimental points of view provide useful information for applications of FOFC in imaging and metrology.
