Abstract

Based on Zernike-model expansion of turbulence phase aberrations and non-Kolmogorov spectrum model of index-of-refraction fluctuation, we analyze the effects of low-order Zernike turbulence aberrations on orbital angular momentum (OAM) entanglement states in a weak fluctuation region. The signal photon detection probability of OAM entanglement states propagating in a slant turbulence channel with non-Kolmogorov turbulence Z-tilt, defocus, astigmatism, and coma aberrations are modeled, respectively. The results demonstrate that turbulence Z-tilt aberration is the dominant aberration, coma is the second, and astigmatism is the third, but that the defocus aberration has no impact on the detection probability. As the power-law exponent of the non-Kolmogorov spectrum increases from 3 to 4, the detection probability decreases.
