Abstract
The radiance and the law of conservation of radiance are two concepts created in an effort to explain experimental observations with extended incoherent sources. In this work we show that such observations are an effect of the partial coherence of the optical fields and that they can be explained by calculating the irradiance of the diffraction pattern of apertures with partial coherent illumination.
