Paper Abstract

The paper presents an overview of the results of the authors investigations into the turbulence on the laser beam parameters propagating along double-passage of the correlated (monostatic) and uncorrelated (bistatic) paths. For the conditions of weak fluctuations we considered a variance and mean intensity on an axis of a wave by reflected from a diffraction- limited mirror when illuminating it by a quasi-spherical laser beam. The paper describes the results of the investigations of the turbulence affects on the formation by the receiving optical system of the image of a limited mirror reflector illuminated by a laser beam under conditions of strong fluctuations.
