16 October 2003 Interference with a Collett-Wolf source
Author Affiliations +
We report the experimental results displaying the interference of light produced by a pair of symmetrical Collett-Wolf source. By applying Mach-Zehnder interferometer to a pair of symmetrical Collett-Wolf source, the temporal average over an ensemble of realizations of the output power spectrum of the interferometer will display a bright coherent line in the center, which shows the temporal coherence behavior the input beam.
