Paper Abstract

The propagation of pulsed laser radiation along the atmospheric ground paths containing droplet aerosols (fog, drizzle, rain) belongs to a class of problems in nonlinear optics in which the multiple-factor nature and nonadditivity of the processes affecting the transmission of the radiation channel are strongly pronounced. The interaction of the radiation with the medium along the propagation path strongly depends on the type and microphysical properties of the specific meteorological formation as well as on the energy parameters of the beam, the structure of the beam, the temporal regime, and the conditions of focusing. The purpose of this work is to analyze the affect of these factors on the optical characteristics of the channel (the integral transmission) under conditions of explosive vaporization of droplet media.
