We report a plasmon steering method that enables us to dynamically control the direction of surface plasmons generated by a two-mode slit in a thin metal film. By varying the phase between different coherent beams that are incident on the slit, individual waveguide modes are excited. Different linear combinations of the two modes lead to...

In the analysis of light scattering on a sphere it is implicitly assumed that the incident field is spatially fully coherent. However, under usual circumstances the field is partially coherent. We generalize the partial waves expansion method to this situation and examine the influence of the degree of coherence of the incident field on the...

In trying to manipulate the intensity distribution of a focused field, one typically uses amplitude or phase masks. Here we explore an approach, namely, varying the state of spatial coherence of the incident field. We experimentally demonstrate that the focusing of a Bessel-correlated beam produces an intensity minimum at the geometric focus...

We analyze the coherence singularities that occur in the far field that is generated by a broad class of partially coherent sources. It is shown that for rotationally symmetric planar quasihomogeneous sources the coherence singularities form a two-dimensional surface in a reduced three-dimensional space. We illustrate our results by studying the...
