Coherence effects in propagation through photonic crystals

A. Mandatori, M. Bertolotti, C. Sibilia, B. J. Hoenders, M. Scalora


We have analytically studied how a partially coherent quasi plane wave is affected by a photonic crystal structure including a grating. The analysis is presented for spatial and temporal cases showing the possibility to determine the coherence characteristics of the pulse.
