Abstract

The analytical formulas for the average intensity and power in the bucket of the relay propagation of partially coherent cosh-Gaussian (ChG) beams in non-Kolmogorov turbulence have been derived based on the extended Huygens-Fresnel principle. The influences of the beam parameters, relay system parameters and the non-Kolmogorov turbulence parameters on relay propagation are investigated by numerical examples. Numerical results reveal that the relay propagation of the beam is different from that in the case of Kolmogorov turbulence. It is shown that the relay propagation has advantages over direct propagation, and the relay propagation of partially coherent ChG beams depends greatly on the beam parameters, relay system and the generalized exponent α . The focusability of the beam at the target in non-Kolmogorov turbulence increases with larger inner scale, larger relay system radius, smaller outer scale, and smaller generalized structure constant. The results are useful for the practical applications of relay propagation, i.e., free-space communication.
