Among the atmospheric effect of laser propagation, the variations of the radiation
transmittance by water aerosol evaporation have quantitatively been investigated. When the aerosol
was exposed by a 1.07 μm cw fiber laser, the increased amount of the
transmittance variation was a maximum of 19.1% and the volume concentration variation of aerosol was
observed as an increasing of laser intensity. Also, significant irregularity of refractive index was
not found in the heated area during the continuous laser heating.
