Abstract

The translational and boiling motions of dynamic speckles produced in the Fresnel diffraction field under illumination of a Gaussian beam are investigated in detail. The speckle motion is analyzed from the space–time cross-correlation function of speckle intensity fluctuations detected at the two points in the receiving plane. The correlation distance of time-varying speckles is compared with the translation distance of the spatial speckle pattern. The optical conditions for the translational and boiling motions of dynamic speckles are examined and expressed in a diagram. The characteristics for the correlation distance of time-varying speckle intensity fluctuations are finally verified by several experiments.
