Abstract

The effect of coherence properties of illumination on image resolution, well known in a scalar case, is studied for the case of vector electromagnetic illumination. Using an example of vector Gaussian Schell-model illumination, we analyze the dependence of optical system resolution on the transverse correlation lengths of the orthogonal field components and on the ratio of the powers of these components, each taken separately.
