Abstract

In practice, due to the laser device and the inevitable error of the processing technique, the laser source emitted from the communication terminal is partially coherent, and is represented as a Gaussian Schell model (GSM). The cross-spectral density function based on the Gaussian model in previous research is replaced by the GSM. Thus the fiber-coupling efficiency equation of the GSM laser source through atmospheric turbulence is deduced. The GSM equation presents the effect of the source coherent parameter ζ on the fiber-coupling efficiency, which was not included previously. The effects of the source coherent parameter ζ on the spatial coherent radius and the fiber-coupling efficiency through atmospheric turbulence are numerically simulated and analyzed. The result manifests that the fiber-coupling efficiency invariably degrades with increasing ζ. The work in this paper is aimed to improve the redundancy design of fiber-coupling receiver systems by analyzing the fiber-coupling efficiency with the source coherent parameters.
