Paper Abstract

A review of the experimental results obtained in the laboratory regarding the characterization of the phenomena limiting the propagation of laser beams through the atmosphere is presented. It identifies in particular the thermo-mechanical effects created on isolated particles - vaporization, deformation, shattering, ejection - as well as the determination of the threshold values in terms of intensity and energy density required to initiate optical breakdown on aerosols and presents a real site experiment outside the laboratory situation for special meteorological conditions (determination of the breakdown thresholds and transmission balances).
