Abstract

A new method is proposed to simulate the Kolmogorov phase screen. A hybrid phase screen is achieved by linearly combining two phase screens simulated by both spectral and Zernike polynomials methods. Unlike the imperfection of phase structure function existing at some spatial frequencies in each of the two methods, the mean structure function of the hybrid phase screens coincides remarkably well with theory in the whole spatial frequency domain. Apart from advantage on accuracy, the proposed method also saves considerable computational time. For a phase screen with certain accuracy, the new method is ten times and seven times faster compared with the spectral method and Zernike polynomials method, respectively.
