Paper Abstract

In problems of optical location, communication, and energy transmission one frequently runs up against the problem of transporting radiant energy in the form of a light beam to an object located in a random inhomogeneous medium. Here, as a rule, it is necessary to maximize the amount of energy delivered to the object. As is well known, scattering of radiation by refractive index inhomogeneities of the medium leads to a decrease of the average intensity in the near-axial region of the light beam and to the appearance of intensity fluctuations, which taken together substantially degrade the energetic characteristics of the indicated systems.
