A mode coupling approach based on the modal theory of coherence is suggested for the study of partially coherent beams in atmospheric turbulence. An approximate expression is derived for the mode power coupling coefficients, and some specific cases are studied using numerical methods. Several general results derived from the properties of the coupling coefficients are also presented. (c) 2006 Optical Society of America.
