When images are formed from laser beams propagating through turbulent air, a variety of scintillation phenomena occurs beam wander, intensity fluctuations, hot- and cold-spot formation, image blurring, spot broadening, etc. The purpose of this project is to study these effects analytically, and thus to interpret measurements and predict performance in future laser systems.
