Abstract
The temporal spectra of the intensity fluctuations of Gaussian beam waves propagating through a Kolmogrov turbulence are analyzed numerically. It is found that high-frequency spectra (HFS) are mainly determined by a parameter ? that is proportional to the square ofthe ratio ofthe Fresnel size and the beam radius on the receiver. A plane or spherical wave assumption can be made only for a beam with very small A, and the HFS presents a —8/3 power-law dependence. For a beam with moderately small ?, the HFS presents a —8/3 and a —14/3 power-law dependence in two regions. For a beam with ? being about or greater than unity the HFS presents a unique —14/3 power-law dependence. The results are verified by experimental data.
