Paper Abstract

Propagation of partially coherent radiation through strongly absorbing media is studied in this paper. The equation for coherency function was used in the investigation. It was shown that the equation could be reduced to a system of ray equations, assuming a construction of an efficient numerical procedure for its solution. For parabolic distribution of the dielectric constant and an initial Gaussian distribution of the average radiation intensity the analytical solution for a field was obtained. Based on this, the influence of the refraction on inhomogeneous profiles of the refraction index, the absorptance on the statistical, and energy characteristics of radiation were investigated. The peculiarities of coherent and partially coherent radiation propagation through inhomogeneous media were found.
