Abstract : Experiments were conducted in two-way voice communications by means of an optical system employing retromodulation techniques. Several materials were used as large-aperture modulators: lithium niobate and lead lanthanum zirconate titanate. Results are reported concerning means of reducing scintillation effects. The effects at the air-water interface are described. (Author)
