Dr. Gbur's article was recently included in JOSA A most cited articles in the past decade! Congratulations!
Within OSA's well-regarded publishing portfolio, JOSA A serves as home to some of the most valued research in classical optics, image science, and vision, evidenced by its cited half-life of more than 10 years*.
The propagation of vortex beams through weak-to-strong atmospheric turbulence is simulated and analyzed. It is demonstrated that the topological charge of such a beam is a robust quantity that could be used as an information carrier in optical communications. The advantages and limitations of such an approach are discussed.
