Abstract
The evaluation and theory of operation of optical imaging systems is usually predicted on the assumption that the object is incoherently illuminated; and hence the image is formed by a linear superposition of intensities. This basic assumption is not justified in many situations and can lead to differences in the nature of the image. More particularly the effect on the measurement of image detail can be seriously affected by the partially coherent nature of the illumination.
