Abstract
The results of experimental studies of angular divergence for laser beams intersecting an aero-engine jet at different angles to its axis - 90 degree(s), 45 degree(s) and 10 degree(s), are presented. The experiments were carried out on the ground with radiation wavelengths of 1.06 and 0.53 microns. Depending on conditions of the experiment, the angular divergence of radiation impacted by the jet increased 6-35 times as compared to the initial values for undisturbed beams. It has been found that the angular width of the half- micron beam is significantly (two or three times) higher than that of the one-micron beam, which does not fit in with the model of radiation scattered by typical a turbulent medium. Besides, radiation intensity angular distribution demonstrated azimuthal asymmetry correlating with physically selected spatial directions - along and across the jet stream. Based on relevant selection of spectral density for refractive index fluctuations (composition of a turbulent spectrum and additional high frequency spectral components, anisotropy in the outer scales of turbulence) analytical relationships for evaluation of the angular divergence of disturbed beams matching experimental data have been obtained.
