Generalized atmospheric turbulence MTF for wave propagating through non-Kolmogorov turbulence.

A generalized exponential spectrum model is derived, which considers finite turbulence inner and outer scales and has a general spectral power law value between the range 3 to 5 instead of standard power law value 11/3. Based on this generalized spectrum model, a new generalized long exposure turbulence modulation transfer function (MTF) is obtained for… CONTINUE READING
