Investigation of Atmospheric Turbulence by Narrow Laser Beams

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

In order to determine the characteristic parameters of the atmospheric turbulence, the mutual dancing of two parallel narrow laser beams propagating through a turbulent atmosphere has been investigated theoretically and experimentally. The experiments have been carried out with a He–Ne laser on a 130-m path, one meter from the ground. The method allowed the determination of the variance of the refractive index fluctuations, as well as the values of scale of the turbulence in the vertical and horizontal planes.
