Abstract

Employing the theory of coherence, the partially coherent flat-topped vortex hollow beam is first introduced. The analytical propagation equation for a partially coherent flat-topped vortex hollow beam in oceanic turbulence is derived by using the extended Huygens–Fresnel diffraction integral and the spectrum of oceanic turbulence. The influences of coherence length, beam order N, the topological charge M, and the parameters of oceanic turbulence on evolution properties of partially coherent flat-topped vortex hollow beams propagating in oceanic turbulence are obtained by using the numerical examples.
