Abstract

The inverse problem of the interaction of an isotropic Gaussian Schell-model beam with a semirough target in turbulent atmosphere is investigated. It is found that we can determine the target size and the transverse correlation width of the target by measuring the transverse beam widths and the transverse coherence widths of the beams at the source plane and the receiver plane. Our results are useful for remote sensing and bistatic LIDAR system.
