Abstract:

The work is directed to the investigation of the transmission characteristics of optical waves with wavelengths in the range of 1-15 micrometers through various atmospheric conditions including clouds, fog, turbulence, rain, hail, snow, and inhomogeneous layers. Progress was made in the areas of plane wave solution, beam wave solution, and pulse wave solution of the optical transmission characteristics through fog.
