Lasers, Atmospheric turbulence
This report describes the instrumentation which is currently being utilized at the Oregon Graduate Center in a study of atmospheric turbulence effects on the long-range propagation of visible and infrared laser beams, with independent measurements of the turbulence parameters. The specially designed instrumentation includes portions of an Analog Computer; a special Differential Thermometer; a Laser Modulator; and auxiliary meteorological instruments; which were developed by the author. Sample experimental results are given in the report.
