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]
