Physics of light propagation through the distributed volume atmosphere with a focus on the impact on the beam from distributed volume turbulence.
Propagating through the distributed volume atmosphere is a new field of research. Drawing upon advances from boundary layer physics, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, meteorology, adaptive optics, laser sciences and singular optics, pcDVT is a multidisciplinary examination of the full complexity and interactions of distributed volume effects. Topics in atmospheric propagation such as refractive layers, clouds, precipitation and dust/aerosols as well as devices suitable for measuring the distributed volume atmosphere, e.g. Lidar, compensation techniques of distributed volume effects, and creation of photonic orbital angular momentum by turbulence are included to mention a few.
