Abstract

A simulation was constructed, and numerical experiments were conducted, of optical-wave double-pass propagation through a phase screen. The phase screen had a Gaussian phase fluctuation with a Kolmogorov power-law spatial spectrum. The results are compared with a theoretical model developed for a similar scattering process but for a phase screen with a Gaussian spatial spectrum.
