Abstract:

The paper presents some results of investigations into the dynamics of statistical characteristics of a laser beam with fluctuating power acting on a droplet aerodisperse medium with the determinate parameters. It is shown that nonlinear interaction processes result in swinging the initial fluctuations of the beam intensity. As a result, random variations of the beam intensity at the end of the path can far exceed the initial ones.
