Abstract

We introduce a class of sources that turn out to be J0 correlated in a scalar description but exhibit varied correlation properties when examined in electromagnetic terms. We prove that a modal expansion can be built explicitly for any of these sources and give an example to illustrate the richness of their behavior.
