Abstract

We investigated the scintillation properties of nonuniformly correlated (NUC) beams in atmospheric turbulence and have shown that NUC beams can not only have lower scintillation but also higher intensity than Gaussian–Schell model beams and even higher intensity than coherent Gaussian beams over certain propagation distances.
