Two-Frequency Mutual Coherence Function Of A Gaussian Beam Pulse In Weak Optical Turbulence: An Analytic Solution
Abbreviated Journal Title
PROPAGATION; SYSTEMS; Optics
Pulse propagation in a random medium is studied through the calculation of the two-frequency mutual coherence function. An exact integral representation is formulated for the two-frequency mutual coherence function of a Gaussian beam pulse propagating in a weakly fluctuating random medium. Based on the modified von Karman spectrum for refractive-index fluctuations, an analytic approximation to the integral representation is presented and compared with exact numerical results.
