A test program was conducted to measure the transmission of both CO2 and HeNe laser beams through an attenuation region occupied by water drops. Analysis of the measurements shows that there is reasonable agreement between experiment and diffraction theory and that the major source of uncertainty arises from the characterization of the attenuating particle field.
