Paper Abstract

In this paper, results of experimental researches of influence of turbulence on the laser beam image at reflection from a mirror are presented. The study was carried out with a beam focused on a reflector for correlated (monostatic) and uncorrelated (bistatic) paths under conditions of strong fluctuations of intensity. Distributions of the intensity were recorded in the image plane of a reflector and were analyzed. The distribution of intensity is shown to be the two-scale, having wide basis (turbulent scale) and narrow peak (coherent scale) under the certain conditions at the correlated path. The scales of the object image have been determined depending on conditions of propagation and of a diameter of the receiving objective.
