Abstract

This paper describes a new optical technique for measuring the refractive-index structure parameter <i>C</i><sup>2</sup><sub><i>n</i></sub>. By using relatively large incoherent transmitting and receiving optics, the scintillometer maintains its calibration and path-weighting function throughout the range of observed refractive turbulence values, even to the case of saturated scintillation.
