Abstract : This article reports on studies of continuous wave high power CO2 laser beam atmospheric propogation near the surface. Laser powers are 3kW-5kW. Propagation distances are 77m-107m. Patterns of changes associated with laser reception spots, given rise to by beam distortion and atmospheric influences, were obtained.
