Abstract:

The report summarizes progress on three currently active efforts in the investigation of laser beam scintillations due to atmospheric turbulence. These topics are 1 multiwavelength scintillation over a long horizontal path with a very high integrated-path turbulence level 2 finite-beam or transmitter aperture effects including beam wander, spread, and scintillation and 3 turbulence intermittency effects.
