Abstract:

The objective of this project was to investigate the behavior of partially coherent beams possessing orbital angular momentum partially coherent vortex beams, or PCVBs with the goal of applying and optimizing them for stable propagation through the atmosphere. A number of novel beam classes were developed and their propagation characteristics studied computationally.
