Propagation of higher order Bessel–Gaussian beams in turbulence

  • H.T. EyyuboğluEmail author


The propagation characteristics of higher order Bessel–Gaussian beams travelling in turbulent atmosphere are investigated. Using extended Huygens–Fresnel principle, I formulated receiver plane intensity and solved it down to a double integral stage. Source beam plots are made illustrating the variation of intensity against order and width parameter. From the examination of receiver intensity graphs, it is seen that Bessel–Gaussian beam are converted into modified Bessel–Gaussian beams at intermediate propagation ranges eventually ending up as Gaussian profiles. The impacts of order and turbulence levels on beam profile are analysed. Focusing effects and beam size change along the propagation axis are studied.
