Abstract
Optical turbulence is the term that is used being based on the analogy betw een hydrodynamic and optical equations. The phenomenon of turbulent photon filamentation occurs in lasers and other active optical media at high Fresn el-numbers, A description of this phenomenon is suggested. The solutions to evolution equations are presented in the form of a bunch of filaments chao tically distributed in space and having different radii. The probability di stribution of patterns is defined characterizing the probabilistic weight o f different filaments. The most probable filament radius and filament numbe r are found, being in good agreement with experiment. (C) 2000 Elsevier Sci ence B.V. All rights reserved.
