Paper Abstract

In This paper, on the basis of the generalized Huygens- Fresnel diffraction integral and by using the statistical- optics model of high-power lasers presented by Manes and Simmons at LLNL, the propagation and focusing properties of high-power lasers with amplitude modulations (AMs) and phase fluctuations (PFs) have been studied in detail. Numerical calculations for the apertured case have been performed, showing the dependence of focused field characteristics on the truncation parameter, Fresnel number of the system, phase fluctuations and amplitude modulations of high-power laser beams.
