A pairwise correlation function in relative momentum space is discussed as a tool to characterize the properties of an incoherent source of noninteracting Abelian anyons. This is analogous to the Hanbury-Brown Twiss effect for particles with fractional statistics in two dimensions. In particular, using a flux tube model for anyons, the effects of source shape and quantum statistics on a two-particle correlation function are examined. Such a tool may prove useful in the context of quantum computing and other experimental applications where studying anyon sources are of interest.
