Abstract

A simple model for the propagation of laser beams in a turbulent atmosphere is presented. Closed analytical expressions, suitable for system research and real-time analysis of field experiments, are obtained for the probability of the intercepted power to exceed a certain threshold level. A hierarchy of approximations is described and the validity range of each is discussed.
