Paper Abstract

By neglecting one of the transverse coordinates in the computer analysis of laser propagation one can study problems requiring high spatial resolution or many realizations of the atmosphere in a cost-effective way. A one-transverse dimensional wave optics code treating diffraction, turbulence and thermal blooming is described. Results are presented relating this approximate approach to more exact codes with full spatial dimensionality.
