Entropy Concentration in Partially Coherent Fields (JM4A.42)
Presenter: Mitchell Harling, Brown University
An optical field's properties depend on the rank of its coherence matrix. The entropy of a rank-2 field can be concentrated into one degree-of-freedom. The entropy of a rank-3 field can never be concentrated.
