Abstract

The effect of the detector nonlinearity on the statistics of a fluctuating signal is evaluated. The input signal is assumed to be log-normally distributed, which is of interest in the study of the laser propagation through the turbulent atmosphere. Both detector threshold and saturation effects are taken into account.
