Abstract:

A preliminary experimental study has been made of the nature and effects of the intermittency of turbulence on the scintillation of multiwavelength laser beams. It has been concluded that the effects are substantial, and that recently begun theoretical efforts which take the intermittency into account should be expanded. The results are sufficient to permit the definition of a possible detailed experimental study at a later date. These results and those reported earlier are presented in a paper which is in preparation. Current measurements involve transmitter-aperture effects, which will be followed by a longer-path study of scintillation phenomena.
