Abstract

We derive a complex area correlation theorem describing global second-order statistical properties of pulses propagating in coherent linear absorbers. We also illustrate temporal evolution of a generic partially coherent pulse in a coherent linear absorber by discussing the behavior of its temporal intensity profile and degree of coherence.
