Abstract

Experimental results are presented which suggest that the probability distribution of fluctuations in the intensity of laser light propagating through atmospheric turbulence are reasonably well described by K distributions in the intermediate range of propagation path lengths, L ≃ 600 m, β0 ≃ 1–2, where the mean square fluctuation < I2 > / < I > 2 can be as high as five.
