This arrangement is equivalent to a Michelson interferometer with an optical wedge in one arm and it measures the first order coherence of the light. 2 Statistical properties of classical light 25 For an extended source we get light from different parts of the source reaching the telescope under slightly different directions, let us say with a very small angular difference of δθ. Each wave will produce an interference system, but at a slightly different location in the focal plane. This is due to the additional optical path ∆l = d sin(δθ) ≈ d δθ inside the interferometer.
