Simulation and fabrication of the atmospheric turbulence phase screen based on a fractal model

Jia Peng, Sijiong Zhang


Abstract An atmospheric turbulence phase screen generated using a fractal method is introduced. It is etched onto fused silica and tested in the laboratory. The etched screen has relatively low cost, high resolution, and can be used in the broad waveband under severe temperature conditions. Our results are shown to agree well with the theory.
