We consider the stochastic electromagnetic Gaussian Schell-model (EGSM) beam and show that the polarization of stochastic electromagnetic EGSM beams in the source plane affect spectral switches of diffracted stochastic electromagnetic EGSM beams in the far field. For two cases of fully coherent and partially coherent δxx=δyy the behavior of spectral switches are same in different degrees of polarization of the source.
