Abstract
We address the problem of defining degrees of coherence for partially polarized light. We discuss a new theoretical approach that introduces intrinsic degrees of coherence. These parameters make it possible to separate partial polarization and partial coherence and are measurable quantities. We analyze their physical meaning and propose a method to measure them with a finite number of measurement.
