Using a model of the turbulent atmosphere, we have experimentally investigated the fractal characteristics of fluctuations in the position of laser beam center of gravity. It was established that the fractal radiation properties manifest themselves most obviously when the beam diameter is smaller or comparable with the characteristic size of the inhomogeneities. It was shown that in a turbulent medium with invariable statistical characteristics, the Hurst parameter of fluctuations and, correspondingly, the fractal dimensionality are characterized by high stability.
