Abstract

The average image spatial-frequency spectrum of an object under a temporally stationary, spatially incoherent source illumination is calculated in the narrow-band approximation for weak turbulence. It is found that the source temporal coherence has little influence on the performance of the composite turbulence-lens imaging system.
