This book presents a systematic account of optical coherence theory within the framework of classical optics, as applied to such topics as radiation from sources of different states of coherence, foundations of radiometry, effects of source coherence on the spectra of radiated fields, coherence theory of laser modes, and scattering of partially coherent light by random media.But the argument is fallacious; the fallacy results from ignoring the spontaneous emission emerging from the light amplifier ... In Chapter 18 we discussed a similar problem in connection with the laser, and we took the single field mode to be ananbsp;...
