    Abstract. In lidar measurements noise and fluctuations strongly affect the results. The reason is a rapid decrease of the signal-to-noise ratio with an increase of distance. The differential absorption lidar (DIAL) is particularly sensitive to the signal instabilities. In this paper we present a...

    Five decades ago, Hanbury Brown and Twiss (HBT) demonstrated that the angular size of stars can be measured by correlating the intensity fluctuations measured by two detectors at two different locations. Since then, non-local correlation measurements have become ubiquitous in many areas of...

    We calculate correlation radius of polarization fluctuations in the disordered ferroelectrics. The consideration is performed in the model suitable for relaxor ferroelectrics. We consider reference Burns phase in a mean field approximation subjected to random electric field E. The “entire...
