Abstract
An approximate expression is presented for the joint probability density function of the IF signal magnitudes from an array of optical heterodyne detectors operating in the clear air turbulent atmosphere. The treatment considers local oscillator shot noise, log-normal amplitude fluctuations, and Gaussian phase front perturbations, where arbitrary correlation of phase and of amplitude fading are allowed.
