Abstract

Expressions are derived for the radiant intensity generated by a planar, anisotropic, Gaussian, Schell-model source of any state of coherence. It is found that with an appropriate choice of the source parameters the radiant intensity may be rotationally symmetric about the source plane and may even become identical with the radiant intensity produced by a completely coherent and rotationally symmetric laser source.
