Meaning of quadratic structure functions

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Quadratic structure functions are sometimes used to describe the phase of partially coherent waves. The physical significance of such structure functions, that they describe a tilted but unwarped phase, limits their applicability to propagation calculations. Calculation of processes in which the principal effects are due to phase-front tilting may be simplified by recognizing that fact.
