Paper Abstract

In free-space optical communication links, atmospheric turbulence causes fluctuations in both the intensity and the phase of the received light signal, affecting link performance. Influence of Kolmogorov and non-Kolmogorov turbulence statistics on laser communication links are analyzed for different propagation scenarios.
