Hi, it is known that second order correlation function (g(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{2}) is a constant( =1) for ideal laser or single frequency light sources. So, what is the second order correlation function for non ideal laser? Is it still a constant or something related to the coherence time of the laser?
