Paper Abstract

A new heuristic optical scintillation model developed recently is viewed and it is a available method in investigation on laser beams propagation in turbulent atmosphere. The irradiance scintillation is treated as a modulation of small scale scintillation by large scale scintillation as laser beams propagation in turbulent atmosphere, the irradiance scintillation is investigated for uplink propagation at various receiving heights and zenith angles for different atmospheric turbulence model. The influences of receiving height and zenith angle on the irradiance scintillation is analyzed for different atmospheric turbulence model, and the conclusions deduced are useful for farther future researches.
