We derived analytical expressions for the correlation of intensity fluctuations of a partially coherent Gaussian Schell-model plane-wave pulse scattered by deterministic and random media. Our results extend the study of correlation of intensity fluctuations at two space points for scattered stationary fields to that at two time points for scattered non-stationary fields.
