Paper Abstract

This paper describes the widows for laser transport in the atmosphere. The limitations caused mainly by Rayleigh scattering, stimulated Raman scattering, thermal blooming and so on are discussed here. From these limitations, windows for laser space applications are found out. The widows have enough area in laser parameters for several applications of laser in the space.
