- Beam condition for scattering on random mediaMayukh Lahiri

Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York 14627, USA*J Opt Soc Am A Opt Image Sci Vis*26:2043-8. 2009..In this paper a necessary and sufficient condition is derived for a beam to retain its beamlike form after it is scattered on a stochastic medium. We illustrate the result by an example... - Polarization properties of stochastic light beams in the space-time and space-frequency domainsMayukh Lahiri

Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York 14627, USA*Opt Lett*34:2936-8. 2009..Although the theories of polarization in the space-time and space-frequency domains are somewhat analogous, they have been developed independently, and there is no obvious connection between them. We investigate how they are related... - Negative refraction of a partially coherent electromagnetic beamMayukh Lahiri

Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York 14627, USA*Opt Lett*38:1407-9. 2013..In this Letter, we discuss the theory of negative refraction of a partially coherent electromagnetic beam. We show that negative refraction can produce change in spatial coherence of such a beam... - Concept of purity in the theory of optical polarizationMayukh Lahiri

Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York 14627, USA*Opt Lett*38:866-8. 2013..If an optical beam obeys these conditions, its space-frequency degree of polarization has the same value at all frequencies present in the spectrum, and the value is equal to the space-time degree of polarization... - Spectral changes of stochastic beams scattered on a deterministic mediumMayukh Lahiri

Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York 14627, USA*Opt Lett*37:2517-9. 2012..We also show that this phenomenon may be used to obtain information about the structure of a deterministic medium... - Cross-spectral density matrices of polarized light beamsMayukh Lahiri

Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY 14627, USA*Opt Lett*34:557-9. 2009..We present three kinds of such matrices, each of which represents a beam that is completely polarized at every point. Some of the beams do not imitate monochromatic beams, in contrast to the usual assumption made in polarization optics... - Relationship between complete coherence in the space-time and in the space-frequency domainsMayukh Lahiri

Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York 14627, USA*Phys Rev Lett*105:063901. 2010..We also show that the concept of cross-spectral purity, introduced by L. Mandel many years ago, plays an important role in clarifying this relationship... - Implications of complete coherence in the space-frequency domainMayukh Lahiri

Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York 14627, USA*Opt Lett*36:2423-5. 2011..In this Letter, we consider complete spatial coherence at a pair of points in the space-frequency domain and derive a condition that the field at those points must obey. We illustrate the usefulness of the condition by an example... - Statistical similarity and cross-spectral purity of stationary stochastic fieldsMayukh Lahiri

Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Rochester, Rochester, New York 14627, USA*Opt Lett*37:963-5. 2012..In this Letter, we discuss some implications of statistical similarity of an optical field on its cross-spectral purity...
