Abstract
Partially coherent beams, such as Gaussian Schell-model beam, partially coherent dark hollow beam, partially coherent flat-topped beam and electromagnetic Gaussian Schell-model beam, have important applications in free space optical communications, optical imaging, optical trapping, inertial confinement fusion and nonlinear optics. In this paper, experimental generations of various partially coherent beams are introduced. Furthermore, with the help of a tensor method, analytical formulae for such beams propagating in turbulent atmosphere are derived, and the propagation properties of such beams in turbulent atmosphere are reviewed.
