Anisotropic non-Kolmogorov turbulence phase screens with variable orientation
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
We describe a modification to fast Fourier transform (FFT)-based, subharmonic, phase screen generation techniques that accounts for non-Kolmogorov and anisotropic turbulence. Our model also allows for the angle of anisotropy to vary in the plane orthogonal to the direction of propagation. In addition, turbulence strength in our model is specified via a characteristic length equivalent to the Fried parameter in isotropic, Kolmogorov turbulence. Incorporating this feature enables comparison between propagating scenarios with differing anisotropies and power-law exponents to the standard Kolmogorov, isotropic model. We show that the accuracy of this technique is comparable to other FFT-based subharmonic methods up to three-dimensional spectral power-law exponents around 3.9.
