21 December 1994 Recent developments in optical propagation and imaging through atmospheric turbulence
Author Affiliations +
The subject of coherent optical propagation and imaging through atmospheric turbulence, which was extensively investigated after the invention of the laser, has received renewed attention in recent years, both as a tool for investigating the physics of the atmosphere and in view of a number of applications in adaptive systems, in remote sensing and environmental applications. In the present paper some recent progress will be reviewed, with particular attention to double pass imaging and to the problem of laser scintillation. In double pass imaging, methods have been developed and tested whose aim is the production of images free from turbulence effects. Progress towards the solution of the problem of scintillation includes approximate theory, modelling by means of numerical simulations, and simultaneous measurements of both laser intensity fluctuations and all relevant parameters.
