Propagation of Gaussian-Schell beam in turbulent atmosphere of three-layer altitude model.

Abstract

We propose a method that is used to derive the moment radius of intensity distribution in a turbulent atmosphere. From this study, we have found that the second moment radius is affected only by the first-order expansion coefficient of the wave structure function. If our attention is directed to a higher moment radius, a higher order approximation of the… (More)
