Abstract

Analytic results are presented for the laser beam deflection rate in the case of spatial and temporal smoothing by induced spatial incoherence (ISI). It is shown that for flow perpendicular to the beam propagation direction with Mach number M. temporal smoothing decreases the beam deflection rate for M>1, but may increase it for M<1 and weak acoustic wave damping.
