Paper Abstract

We study the behaviors of scintillation of the electromagnetic beam Gaussian Schell-model (GSM) beam propagating in atmospheric turbulence based on the cross-spectral density matrix. It is shown analytically that the scintillation index the beam is influenced by correlation properties of source and the effect of turbulence simultaneously. The competition between the two types of parameters results in a maximum value of scintillation of the GSM beam propagating in turbulence.
