Course Instructor
SC188: Laser Beam Propagation for Applications in Laser Communications, Laser Radar, and Active Imaging
This course describes beam wave propagation through optical turbulence. Satellite communication systems, laser radar, remote sensing, and adaptive optics are some of the applications affected by optical turbulence. Tractable analytic equations are provided for calculating Gaussian-beam wave statistical quantities affecting system performance. The mutual coherence function (MCF), mean intensity, degree of coherence, and intensity fluctuations (scintillation) are presented. Videos of actual experiments show how to gather data. Examples are presented using MATHEMATICA software programs. Copies of these programs are available in the text.
