Abstract

The problem of the propagation of narrow radiation beams in a scattering medium is considered. The previously formulated small-angle approximation solution accounting for the path length spread is further developed. The numerical scheme for practical calculations is implemented, and the simulation results are presented and discussed. Applicability of the new solution to certain problems of optical communications and data transfer techniques is shown.
