Based on the generalized exponential spectrum for non-Kolmogorov atmospheric turbulence, theoretical expressions of the angle-of-arrival (AOA) variance are derived for plane and spherical optical waves propagating through weak turbulence. Without particular assumption, the new expressions relate the AOA variance to the receiver aperture, finite turbulence inner and outer scales, and the optical wavelength.
