Light coherence properties in optical fibres and visual receptors
Carpenter, David James
The optical field on the end of an optical fibre can display
varying degrees of spatial coherence. The classical analyses of the
excitation of the fibre have relied on the assumptions that the
coherence properties of this field can be approximated by either perfect
coherence or total incoherence, and it has long been appreciated that
the resulting excitations are markedly different.
It is the purpose of the work presented in this thesis to
investigate the effects of differing degrees of...[Show more]
