Abstract:

It has been shown that if one assumes gaussian field statistics in extremely strong turbulence, the scintillation index of an arbitrary source approaches unity. This result is independent of whether the source is coherent or incoherent, provided that the response time of the measuring apparatus is short compared with the coherence time of the source.
