Paper Abstract

Clearing of water aerosol by laser beam vaporization of particles is investigated and in the condensation trail behind aircraft. Physical parameters are calculated for the condensation trail behind subsonic and supersonic. Russian and American aircraft in cruise. Solutions are derived for the intensity of laser radiation, moisture (ice content) and optical thickness of the aerosol in the flow, which is parallel to the beam path. These physical values are described as a function of time and coordinate at the distances of significant medium clearing and radiation extinction.
