|Download MZA's Propagation Demo App.|
MZA has published an application which demonstrates the effect of turbulence on beam propagation. The application uses WaveTrain to interactively compute and display the instantaneous beam intensity pattern resulting from propagation through turbulence having a user-specified strength and distribution. The user may also adjust the wavelength of the light, aperture diameter, propagation path length, and wind speed.
Download the application here:
