Atmospheric turbulence effects on laser communications systems
Spicer, Tadd Edward
MetadataShow full item record
A multiplicative model for the prediction of frequencytranslation effects of scintillation caused by atmospheric turbulence on a simple intensity modulated laser communication system is tested. A revised experimental procedure is implemented, Some data is examined which suggests inadequacies in the model in regard to the prediction of the bandwidth of the translated scintillation noise. In general, the observed bandwidth of the translated scintillation noise is less than predicted by the model, however, frequency translation effects are readily apparent.
