Figure 2 plots the normalized [M.sup.2]-factor of PCLG beams propagating in non-Kolmogorov turbulence for different inner scale [l.sub.0] and outer scale [L.sub.0].
Equation (26) is the main result of this paper, which presents a powerful tool to study the [M.sup.2]-factor of PCLG in the receiving plane.
Now we study the numerical results of the [M.sup.2]-factor for PCLG beams on propagation by using the formula derived in above section.
In this paper, the main aim is to study the propagation properties of [M.sup.2]-factor for PCLG beams in non-Kolmogorov turbulence by using the extended Huygens-Fresnel principle and second-order moments of the WDF.
By using the paraxial form of the extended Huygens-Fresnel principle [3,7], the cross-spectral density of PCLG beams through the turbulence can be expressed as [21, 22].

(14), the expression of [M.sup.2]-factor for PCLG beams in the received plane can be expressed as
The normalized [M.sup.2]-factor of fully coherent LG beams is worse than that of PCLG beams in atmospheric turbulent.
Figure 5 shows the normalized [M.sup.2]-factor of PCLG beams on propagation in non-Kolmogorov turbulence for different beam orders m, n.
