Abstract
The effect of the inner scale of turbulence on the intensity fluctuations of laser radiation through the atmosphere has been measured. Intensity fluctuations, inner scale and structure parameter were simultaneously measured in conditions of homogeneous turbulence during a number of summer days, starting from very early morning, before sunrise, up to about noon. During the day the turbulence strength varied slowly and continuously, allowing measurements in condition of very low as well as intermediate and very high turbulence levels. Plots of intensity variance versus the structure parameter, for fixed ranges of inner scale values, allow the experimental determination of the role played by the inner scale, for the first time. They constitute a reference for comparison with results from theory or numerical simulations.
