Abstract

The speckle pattern produced in laser light that has been backscattered by atmospheric aerosols is considered. The spatiotemporal correlation properties both of the optical field amplitudes and of the optical intensities are described. Analytical expressions are presented for the special cases of illumination by a short Gaussian pulse and by a cw source.
