Abstract

A theory of usual (positive) refraction of partially coherent electromagnetic beams has been developed recently. In this Letter, we discuss the theory of negative refraction of a partially coherent electromagnetic beam. We show that negative refraction can produce change in spatial coherence of such a beam.
