Abstract
Phase Screen simulations for laser propagation through non-Kolmogorov turbulence are presented and the results for scintillation index and correlation functions for the intensity are compared with the theory at low turbulence levels at selected non-Kolmogorov exponents. Additional simulation results are presented the strong turbulence region. In particular, effects of transitioning from Kolmogorov to non-Kolmogorov turbulence using their spectral equivalence at the Fresnel scale (as suggested in the literature) on the scintillation index and correlation functions at the receiver are examined for two example paths.
