Synthesis of sources with Markovian features

We realize the design and synthesis of partially coherent secondary sources illuminating an ensemble of mobile transmittances in a tandem array. The motion states of the transmittances are random variables which are synchronized by means of the conditional probability density function whose control allows generating sources whose light emission corresponds with a Markov chain. The experimental results are shown.
