Abstract
The recently introduced class of Multi-Gaussian Schell-model [MGSM] beams is investigated via simulations and experiments with regards to its intensity fluctuations on propagation in atmospheric turbulence. The results indicate that the scintillation index of the MGSM beam is reduced for high values of the summation index, in agreement with previous theoretical results.
