Abstract

We present laboratory results for measurements of the four-point coherence function of a spherical wave in the region of coherence enhancement after backscattering through turbulence. Experimental results are compared with the theoretical predictions. We conclude that the shape of the four-point coherence function in our experiment depends on the value of the inner scale of turbulence.
