Rotational frequency shifts for electromagnetic fields of arbitrary states of coherence and polarization Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The rotational frequency shift is studied for fields of arbitrary states of coherence and polarization. It is shown that the power spectrum of the field in the rotating frame is influenced both by the degree of polarization and the degree of coherence. Examples for some model field classes are given. © 2006 Optical Society of America.
