abstract

In our first work in this research thread, we demonstrated that turbulence-created optical vortices are created innitesimally close together in pairs of opposite helicity--call these creation pairs. In that rst work, we postu- lated that creation pairs separate as they propagate, and that they carry both the velocity of, and distance to, the turbulence layer that created them. Subsequent experimental papers have demonstrated this to be true. Our purpose here is to ll two gaps in our original theoretical results and demonstrate both how, in a mathematical treatment, turbulence-created optical vortices can have the velocity of the turbulence layer that created them, and also, present calculation of their separation velocity.© (2012) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
