Paper Abstract

The intensity fluctuations of laser beam cross section caused by a local air turbulence have been experimentally investigated. Registration of successive saturated images of the laser spot has been provided by imaging camera using a computer for image acquisition and processing. Evaluation of the state of turbulence by estimation of the refractive index structure parameters has been carried out.
