Abstract

Authors investigate in numerical experiment the representation of the optical wave phase through the Karhunen-Loeve-Obukhov (KLO) functions obtained using of phase correlation function calculated from experimental data. For such KLO basis the averaged relative error of phase expansion is 5% for 10 basis functions in the expansion series, whereas for the KLO basis calculated with the Kolmogorov structure function of phase the error of phase expansion 5% has been obtained for 78 basis functions.
