Paper Abstract

This paper contains results on the modeling of atmospheric scintillation for optical links. Due to the short wavelength at optical frequencies, the spatial dispersion causes significant signal degradation in addition to temporal scintillation. The overall effects can only be accounted for in an integrated space-time scintillation model. The objective of this paper is to derive a working model for designing and planning of free space optical (FSO) links and networks.
