The role of the phase autocorrelation function in the generation of speckle, focusing and other scintillation effects produced when radiation is scattered by a deep random phase screen is investigated. New analytical formulae are obtained which reveal the mathematical origin of the observed physical phenomena, and these are supported by a range of numerically computed results.
