Paper Abstract

Numerical simulation and analytical calculations of the variance of fluctuations of the total orbital angular momentum (OAM) of Laguerre—Gaussian and Gaussian laser beams propagating in the randomly inhomogeneous atmosphere have been carried out. It is shown that as such beams propagate in the weakly turbulent atmosphere, the relative variance of OAM fluctuations remains much smaller than the relative variance of intensity fluctuations.
