The on-axis average intensity for Gaussian beam excitation limited by an annular aperture in turbulent atmosphere

Abstract

Starting with a Gaussian beam excitation limited by an annular aperture, the on-axis average intensity is presented in turbulent atmosphere. The on-axis average intensity profile is evaluated by altering the outer and inner radius of an annular aperture, the propagation distance and wavelength. The results show that the outer radius of an annular aperture within a certain size impacts the on-axis intensity distributions. When the propagation distance or the outer radius of an annular aperture is large enough, the on-axis average intensity distributions is not affected by the size of the annular aperture. By calculation and analyses, the variation of the inner radius of the annular aperture and the wavelength of the Gaussian beam that impact on the axial average intensity distributions is also discussed.
