Abstract
Intensity fluctuations of a crossbeam are evaluated in weak atmospheric turbulence. A crossbeam is defined as two asymmetrical Gaussian beams oriented perpendicular to each other, and one of these beams is wider along the x -axis whereas the other beam is wider along the y -axis. Our results indicate that in terms of the intensity fluctuations in weak turbulence, focused crossbeams offer favorable results when compared to the corresponding focused Gaussian beam intensity fluctuations. However, for collimated crossbeams, such a comparison is in favor of the collimated Gaussian beam.
