Abstract

We present an approximate analysis of a stochastic laser-beam transfer through a scattering two-component Markovian mixture. We also compare this transfer with a transfer of the beam through an equivalent uniform medium. The problem is considered by use of the so-called small-angle approximation. Within the framework of our approach we obtain some sets of differential equations, defining a total transferred energy and an effective beam size. Our results show that transfer of laser radiation through binary Markovian media differs considerably from transfer through uniform media.
