  1. Frits Zernike. The concept of degree of coherence and its application to optical problems. Physica, 5(8):785 - 795, 1938. Keyword(s): van Cittert-Zernike.
    Abstract: The maximum visibility of the interferences obtainable from two points in a wave field is defined as their degree of coherence gamma. By a simple statistical method general formulae are found for deducing gamma from illumination data. For any extended lightsource gamma is found equal to the amplitude in a certain diffraction image. It does not change by the use of a condensing lens, but depends only on the aperture of the illuminating cone. These properties are applied to the microscopic observation of objects in transmitted light.

This collection of SAR literature is far from being complete.
It is rather a collection of papers which I store in my literature data base. Hence, the list of publications under PUBLICATIONS OF AUTHOR'S NAME should NOT be mistaken for a complete bibliography of that author.
