Abstract:

In the report the author presents new results for the covariance of the intensity fluctuations of a plane wave propagating in a strongly turbulent medium, and evaluates the consequences of these new results on aperture averaging, angle of arrival fluctuations, and the temporal frequency spectrum of the intensity scintillations. The differences between the strong turbulence cases and the weak turbulence cases are generally quite significant.
