Abstract

We have studied how turbulence influences one’s ability to determine the spatial-frequency composition of an incoherent source by use of irradiance or speckle interferometry. We have found that results obtained by using these methods are not significantly affected by the turbulence for the case of high spatial frequencies; however, the lower frequencies may be affected considerably.
