Abstract

The propagation of partially coherent flat-topped beams in uniaxial crystals orthogonal to the optical axis is investigated. Analytical propagation formulas for partially coherent flat-topped beams propagating through uniaxial crystals orthogonal to the optical axis are derived and some analyses are illustrated by numerical examples related to the propagation properties of partially coherent circular flat-topped beams. It is found that the propagation properties of partially coherent flat-topped beams in uniaxial crystals are closely related to the initial coherence and the ratio of extraordinary and ordinary refractive indices.
