Low emittance beams are required for high brightness beams applications. Contributions to emittance degradations come from electromagnetic fields' non-linearities which can be reduced using a transversally and longitudinally uniform beam. For these reasons the evaluation of the beam quality is a very important task. Concerning the transverse analysis the spatial autocorrelation parameter has been introduced: it gives an evaluation of how beam non-uniformity is distributed. The paper describes the spatial autocorrelation concept and applies it to the evaluation of a laser beam for high brightness beam applications. Moreover the paper shows the spatial autocorrelation evolution along a photo-injector as an additional tool for beam dynamics studies.
