Definitions for "coherent light"
Light in which the phases of all electromagnetic waves at each point on a line normal to the direction of the the beam are identical. Coherent light is usually monochromatic, and the most common source of such light for practical uses is from a laser.
Illumination in which phasor amplitudes at all object points vary in unison, such as light from a point source or a laser.
Light in which all parameters are predictable and correlated at any point in time or space, particularly over an area in a lane perpendicular to the direction of propagation or over time at a particular point in space.
