Abstract

A mathematical model considering the transmission of a partially coherent Gaussian Schell-model (GSM) beam in slant turbulence atmosphere of heterodyne detection was established. A closed-form expression of the weighting factor for the partially GSM beam at the receiving end was derived. The effect of the beam mode on the performance of the proposed detection system was theoretically investigated. The results show that the proportion of the fundamental mode and heterodyne efficiency can be optimized by controlling the waist radius of the signal and local oscillator beams. The inner scale of turbulence significantly affects the heterodyne efficiency and normalized ${M^2}$. With a larger mode order, the proportion of the fundamental mode and heterodyne efficiency are lowered.
