Paper Abstract

The aero-optical problem of laser beam propagation through a contrail is solved by using a rigorous numerical calculation of the nonlinear Schrodinger equation and an asymptotic description of a turbulent condensation trail behind a large civil aircraft, including particle sizes distribution of the polydispersive water aerosols.
