DEFINITION
Coherence

The matching, in space (transverse coherence) or time (temporal coherence), of the wave structure of different parallel rays of a single frequency of electromagnetic radiation. This results in the mutual reinforcing of the energy of a larger beam. Lasers and radar systems produce partially coherent radiation.
