Does anyone have an intuitive idea for the statistics of chaotic light? I can understand that the power fluctuations in this kind of light can give rise to a second order autocorrelation parameter g(2) higher than 1. However I can not see why the value for this parameter should be g(2)=2. Does anyone have an intuitive explanation for this value and why it is not higher or lower?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
