Paper Abstract

Scintillation of waves is briefly reviewed, with particular attention to the problem of laser scintillation through atmospheric turbulence. An introductory description of turbulence, its model and relevant parameters, is given. Recent progress towards the solution of the problem of scintillation is reported, which includes modeling by means of numerical simulations and simultaneous measurements of both laser intensity fluctuations and all relevant parameters.
