Abstract

We demonstrate a new and efficient technique for modeling and simulation of spatially incoherent sources using the Wiener chaos expansion method. By implementing this new model, we show that a practical-size photonic structure with a spatially incoherent input source can be analyzed more than 2 orders of magnitude faster compared with the conventional models without sacrificing the accuracy.
