Abstract
Small-scale thermal blooming is investigated with a linear theory, a fully non-linear wave optics propagation code, and a laboratory experiment The linear theory and the wave optics code show excellent agreement. The laboratory experiment shows excellent agreement with the modelling for the high spatial frequency modes.
