Hermite-sine-Gaussian and Hermite-sinh-Gaussian laser beam intensities in a turbulent atmosphere are investigated. The received intensity is formulated by applying the extended Huygens–Fresnel principle to generalized Hermite-hyperbolic-Gaussian and Hermite-sinusoidal-Gaussian beam incidences. From this result, the association to different types of Hermite-hyperbolic-Gaussian and Hermite-sinusoidal-Gaussian beams are defined. The average receiver intensity expressions for Hermite-sine-Gaussian and Hermite-sinh-Gaussian laser beams are evaluated and plotted against the variations in source parameters and propagation conditions. It is observed that the propagation of Hermite-sine-Gaussian and Hermite-sinh-Gaussian laser beams in turbulence have many similarities to their counterparts, Hermite-cosine-Gaussian and Hermite-cosh-Gaussian laser beams, that are examined earlier. It is further observed that under certain conditions the main features of the previously established reciprocity concept between cosine-Gaussian and cosh-Gaussian beams are mostly applicable to Hermite-sine-Gaussian and Hermite-sinh-Gaussian laser beams.
