Mathematical model for the irradiance probability density function of a laser beam propagating through turbulent media
We develop a model for the probability density function (pdf) of the irradiance fluctuations of an optical wave propagating through a turbulent medium. The model is a two-parameter distribution thatExpand

Theory of optical scintillation: Gaussian-beam wave model
Under the assumption that small-scale irradiance fluctuations are modulated by large-scale irradiance fluctuations, we developed a heuristic model of irradiance fluctuations for a propagating opticalExpand

Aperture averaging of optical scintillations: power fluctuations and the temporal spectrum
Abstract Using a recently developed theory of scintillation that is valid under all fluctuation conditions, including the focussing and saturation regimes, we develop general models for predictingExpand

Strehl ratio and scintillation theory for uplink Gaussian-beam waves: beam wander effects
First-order weak-fluctuation Rytov theory predicts that the longitudinal (on-axis) component of the scintillation index of an uplink collimated beam will become significantly smaller as the size ofExpand
