Abstract

A generalization of the method of random wave vectors [Appl. Opt. 36, 464 (1997)] that is suitable for a simulation of turbulence-induced anisoplanatic effects is proposed. A simulation of the cross-correlated phase fluctuations produced by two initially plane waves propagating through weak turbulence is considered. The variation of Cn2 along a propagation path and an effect of the finite outer scale of the turbulence are included in the simulation. The validity of the simulation method is verified by comparison of theoretical and simulated results. The simulation approach developed can be used in the problems related to adaptive optics, speckle inteferometry, guide stars, and imaging through turbulence.
