Abstract

We present a model based on the Fresnel diffraction scheme for the spatial coherence function of random fields created by scattering optical vortex and perfect vortex beams. By using the spatial coherence function we showed analytically, numerically, and experimentally the dependence and independence of the speckle size of an optical vortex and perfect optical vortex (POV) with a topological charge, respectively. We also showed in both cases the linear dependence of speckle size on the distance of propagation. Furthermore, we describe a regime in which the spatial coherence function is nonevolving for the optical vortex beam and the POV beam with the propagation distance.
