3 December 1980 Speckle Propagation Through The Turbulent Atmosphere
Author Affiliations +
A tutorial review of the analysis of speckle propagation through the turbulent atmosphere is presented. It includes the effects of the turbulent atmosphere on a laser source as it propagates to the target and on the target induced speckle field as it propagates back to the receiver. Formulations for the first and second order statistics of the received intensity are developed and illustrated with numerical examples and experimental data.
