Paper Abstract

Thin beam wandering through laboratory generated strong turbulence is experimentally investigated. In the case of small fluctuations and within the limits of geometrical optics, the transverse displacement variance is expected to follow a 3rd-power law dependence on distance. Here we describe the results of measurements made over a few meters path in the cases of strong turbulence.
