So-called "free-space" laser communication systems working near the surface of the Earth must operate in the presence of atmospheric turbulence. The effects of the atmospheric turbulence on the laser beam which are relevant to optical communications are a broadening of the laser footprint, random jitter of the laser beam, and high spatial frequency intensity fluctuations referred to as scintillation. The overall goal of our program is to improve performance and extend the range of optical...[Show more]
