Abstract

We examine correlations between polarization and amplitude degrees of freedom for classical statistical optical fields with Bell-analysis experiments. Strong violations of the Clauser-Horne-Shimony-Holt inequality are observed. These constitute a new witness of classical macroscopic entanglement.
