Based on the integral representation of Bessel function and the extended Huygens-Fresnel principle, an integral expression of the Wigner distribution function (WDF) for partially coherent Bessel-Gaussian beams (PBGBs) propagating through turbulent atmosphere has been obtained. Also, the analytical formulas of the M2-factor for PBGB propagation in such a… CONTINUE READING
