Abstract

Experimental results are presented which suggest that the probability distribution of fluctuations in the intensity of laser light propagating through atmospheric turbulence are reasonably well described by <i>K</i> distributions in the intermediate range of propagation path lengths, <i>L</i> ≃ 600 m, β<sub>0</sub> ≃ 1–2, where the mean square fluctuation < <i>I</i><sup>2</sup> > / < <i>I</i> > <sup>2</sup> can be as high as five.
