Abstract

The extended Huygens–Fresnel formulation is used to calculate the average image spectra of a point scatterer, an infinite plane mirror, and a perfectly diffuse object that are illuminated and viewed through the same turbulent medium. It is shown that this double-passage effect can lead to diffraction-limited information about the point scatterer and the infinite mirror, whereas for the perfectly diffuse object the object spectrum is completely washed out, forming a uniform background.
