partial coherence

partial coherence

[′pär·shəl kō′hir·əns]
(physics)
Property of two waves whose relative phase undergoes random fluctuations which are not, however, sufficient to make the wave completely incoherent.

The partial coherence of the light over the sample is determined by the Van Cittert-Zernike theorem (Born & Wolf, 2005) what stablish that the diameter of the area almost coherently illuminated is given by [D.sub.coh] = 0.32[bar.[lambda]]z/[d.sub.p], where z is the distance from the pinhole to the sample.
