Paper Abstract

As the effects of various weather conditions on laser beams propagating in the atmosphere are hard to mitigate, in order to obtain high quality of the laser propagation, a new method is put forward in this paper. The theory uses feedback compensation technology to mitigate atmospheric scintillation effect, namely collecting the atmospheric turbulence factor in real time, and feedback it to the transmitter of laser real-timely. An experiment and simulation tests to verify the effect of feedback compensation have been taken to analyze the feedback effects and feasibility. The obtained results show the method can mitigate atmospheric scintillation in the atmospheric transmission.
