Abstract

Coherence theory predicts that the correlation in the fluctuations of a source distribution can cause frequency shifts in the spectrum of the emitted radiation, even when the source is at rest relative to the observer. Recently we measured angular spectrum redistribution, or frequency shifts from a real image of a point source, and further verified the coherent interference effect of a finite-band source.
