Abstract

Abstract Polarization properties of Gaussian Schell-mode type photon beams propagating through the non-Kolmogorov turbulence in a slant channel are studied which are based on the model of quantum field and the effective photon annihilation/creation operator. Our numerical results show that the degree of polarization increases with the increasing of the transverse coherent width of source ρs0, the source's transverse size ω0 and the power law of the turbulent spectrum, but the degree of polarization P decreases as the zenith angle θ increases. The effect of the wavelength of light beam on the degree of polarization of Gaussian Schell-model beams is small.
