Paper Abstract

The efficiency of using an Airy axisymmetric beam for energy transfer and concentration to a given point in a randomly inhomogeneous medium is studied. Capabilities of this beam are assessed in comparison with beams of other types. The variance of beam wandering is calculated. For the given parameters of the transmitting system, path length, and degree of turbulent distortions, the intensity at the axis of the considered Airy beam is shown to be much lower than that of other beams, the Airy beam is compared with. In addition, the Airy beam is characterized by smaller wandering.
