A Q-switched laser pulse is a good example. 45 survive. The expectation function of intensity is thus I(r, t) = aj (ν) eiντ dν j = Fτ A(ν) ak (ν ) e−iν τ dν k 2 . 3) Coherence Property of Light—The State of the Radiation 27 where we have defined A(ν) = j aj (ν) as the total amplitude of the mode of frequency ω. 3. Differing from chaotic-thermal field, here, we assume a constant phase relationship between the subfields. The calculated wavepacket, or pulse, is the result of constructive interference or coherent superposition of the subfields.

For example, a pulsed laser, either Q-switched or mode-locked, generates well-defined wavepackets in E(r, t) or pulses in I(r, t). The intensity, I(r, t), no longer fluctuates randomly in the neighborhood of a constant value from time to time nondeterministically, but becomes a well-defined function of time deterministically. 44 are superposed at each space-time coordinate with a constant phase ϕj (ω) − ϕk (ω ) = ϕ0 . 45 by taking a constant phase in terms of the sub-source and Fourier-mode. In a measurement, however, the subfields may not be able to take the same constant phase from the radiation source and thus produce a wavepacket slightly differ from its expectation.

The expectation value of intensity, I(r, t) , is the sum of all possible sub-pulses excited by all possible independent sub-sources. It is clear that each of the sub-pulses is in the form of a well-defined function in space-time due to the coherent superposition of its Fourier-modes. 4 is formulated as a summation of a set of sub-pulses. Each sub-pulse corresponds to the Fourier transforms of aj (ν) of the jth sub-source. Each Fourier transform yields a well defined wavepacket in space-time if aj (ν) is well defined.
