Paper Abstract

By building upon the compound field model that leads to the I-K distribution, we develop simple phase distribution models for an optical wave propagating through a turbulent medium that are applicable in weak turbulence regimes. In one case both the absolute phase and phase-difference distributions are closely approximated by the family of one-dimensional K distributions, while in another case the functional form of the phase distribution is that of a simple exponential function.
