Abstract
A mode coupling approach was studied as a tool to describe the propagation of partially coherent, partially polarized beams in atmospheric turbulence. An approximate expression is derived for the mode power coupling coefficients and some specific cases are studied using numerical methods. Several general results derived from the properties of the coupling coefficients are also presented. Possible applications for sources with tunable polarization distribution characteristics will be discussed.
