Abstract

The temporal spectrum of beam wander is formulated by considering a Gaussian Schell-model beam passing through atmospheric turbulence with a finite outer scale. Two simpler asymptotic formulas for the temporal spectrum of beam wander within the high- and low-frequency ranges are derived, respectively. Based on the formulations, the effects of the initial partial coherence of the beam, finite outer scale of turbulence, initial beam radius, and initial phase front radius of curvature on the temporal spectrum of beam wander are analyzed by numerical examples.
