Abstract

The propagation of a class of partially polarized beams though atmospheric turbulence is treated using the coherent-modes-decomposition approach. This approach allows specifying the properties of sources generating radiation with a narrow polarization distribution that could be employed in active polarimetric remote sensing applications.
