Abstract
We experimentally tested the operator formalism of radiative transfer on the response of an instrument to partially coherent wavefield produced by radiation emitted by distant and extended blackbody sources. The predictions of the formalism are found to agree well with the experiments. Phase space parameters are identified that characterize a measurement as well as indicating when the formalism will be useful, when we are not in the regime of geometrical optics or plane wave diffraction.
