A temporal-coherence anisotropy of unpolarized light

Abstract : We analyze the anisotropic behavior of unpolarized, temporally partially coherent light. We demonstrate that unpolarized light with different intrinsic degrees of coherence can present an anisotropic behavior which is experimentally observable while it is not the case if both intrinsic degrees are equal. This behavior is analyzed in comparison with the standard anisotropy property of partially polarized light.
