Abstract

The concept of pseudo-Bessel correlated beams is introduced, and their scintillation properties on propagation through turbulence are investigated. By using the Rytov approximation, the scintillation index of pseudo-Bessel correlated beams is formulated in weak turbulence. The study of scintillation is extended into strong turbulence by numeric simulations. It is shown that by choosing an appropriate coherence parameter, pseudo-Bessel correlated beams have lower scintillation than comparable fully coherent beams in both weak and strong turbulence. In addition, the configuration of pseudo-Bessel correlated beams is modified by adding a horizontal beamlet; the scintillation properties of these modified beams are also discussed.
