Abstract

An analytical solution of the problem of light scattering by droplet aerosol propagating in a divergent CO2 laser beam is carried out by a variety of simplifying assumptions. The formulas were obtained for calculating the scattered visible radiation field and the CO2 laser thermal action function for a specified increase in the distance of scattered light detecton in aerosol. The results obtained of the solution enabled us to specify the characteristic parameters of the problem.
