Paper Abstract

In this article, the full aperture tilt caused by the incident and returned waves of different paths is studied analytically. It is found that the variance of full aperture tilt of returned beam could be less than 10% of that of transmitted beam under some conditions, and the main reason is the asymmetrical distribution of atmospheric turbulence in different altitude. The effect of coherence of laser beams is also studied.
