Paper Abstract

The statistical properties of non-Gaussian speckle in the image plane of the optical system are considered. The analytical expressions are derived for dispersion of intensity fluctuations, intensity correlation function and power spectrum of scattered intensity fluctuations. An experiment carried out at the wavelength 0.63 micrometers has shown a good agreement with data for dispersion of intensity fluctuations whereas experimental data for spectrum width disagree substantially with theoretically predicted behavior. The reasons for a discrepancy between the theoretical and experimental results are discussed.
