Abstract
We have developed a closed-form expression for the intensity variance of a spatially partially coherent source with a finite aperture. For the partially coherent source pair-correlated field statistics and Gaussian-phase statistics are introduced and the results compared. It is found that pair-correlated field statistics for the source are in good agreement with expected results for coherent and incoherent sources, while Gaussian phase statistics give unreasonably high scintillation results for incoherent sources.
