Abstract
In view of the previous work, the effective radius of curvature (ERC) and Rayleigh range zR of a general-type partially coherent beam propagating are studied in anisotropic oceanic turbulence. Based on the extended Huygens–Fresnel integral, we derive the formulae of the second-order moments of Wigner distribution function (WDF) in anisotropic oceanic turbulence. The calculation results reveal that turbulent anisotropy has a sharp impact on both the ERC and Rayleigh range for a general-type beam. In the near field, the effect of anisotropic oceanic turbulence on the ERC is distinct. With the increase of propagation distance, these influence on the ERC gradually weaken, and can be ignored in the far field. In addition, zR is always larger than that of the conventional Gaussian-Shell model beam in anisotropic oceanic turbulence. And these results will be useful in optical underwater communication.
