Abstract

Taking the partially coherent Hermite–sinh-Gaussian (H-ShG) beam as a more general type of partially coherent beams, a comparative study of the beam-width spreading of partially coherent H-ShG beams in atmospheric turbulence is performed by using the relative width, normalized beam width, and turbulence length. It is shown that the relative width versus the beam parameters, such as the spatial correlation length σ 0 , beam orders m, n, Sh-part parameter Ω 0 , and waist width w 0 , provides a simple and intuitive insight into the beam-width spreading of partially coherent H-ShG beams in turbulence, and the results are consistent with those using the turbulence length. The validity of our results is interpreted physically.
