Abstract

It has been experimentally demonstrated that the effect of doubly scattering coherent light within the limitations of a particular model gives rise to probability densities that are K distributed. The probability distribution of photon counts P(n) therefore has an exact analytic form and has been favorably compared with the experimental values, as have the normalized moments of intensity.
